  4. Click OK. The SecoClient is uninstalled.

Uninstalling the SecoClient in the Mac OS

NOTE:

Use the uninstallation program to uninstall the SecoClient by referring to the following procedure. You are not advised to drag SecoClient.app to the Trash to uninstall the software. Otherwise, residual files remain in the system, which may cause anomalies upon next installation.

  2. Click Uninstall. The program starts to authenticate user identity. Only the user with the root permission can uninstall the SecoClient.

Uninstalling the Software in the Linux System

  1. Log in to the Linux system using an account that has the root permission.
  2. Start the Terminal and access the usr/local/SecoClient directory.

  3. Run the ./ uninstall.sh command as the root user to uninstall the SecoClient.

Version Detection and Upgrade

The SecoClient supports version detection and upgrade.

Before You Start

  • The SecoClient can detect software versions and perform upgrades only after establishing a VPN connection with the peer gateway.
  • The basic upgrade procedure is as follows:
    1. The enterprise network administrator uploads the latest SecoClient software package to the enterprise gateway.
    2. When you establish a VPN tunnel with the gateway through the SecoClient, the SecoClient automatically detects and compares the current version with the version of the software installation package on the gateway.
    3. If the software installation package on the gateway is determined as a new version, the system prompts you to perform the upgrade.

Procedure

  1. Right-click the tray icon of the SecoClient and choose Option from the shortcut menu. The Options dialog box is displayed. Select Detect a new version. If this option is selected, the SecoClient periodically checks whether there is a new version on the gateway.
  2. If a new version is detected, a prompt is displayed, asking you to upgrade the software. Click Yes to download and install the new version.

Changing the Login Password

The SecoClient allows users to change their login passwords.

Before You Start

The password can be changed only when a VPN connection is set up between the SecoClient and the peer gateway.

NOTE:

The password change function is supported only in SSL VPN scenarios.

Procedure

  1. Right-click the tray icon of the SecoClient and choose Change Password from the shortcut menu. The Change Password dialog box is displayed.
  2. Enter the new password.

Follow-Up Procedure

After the password is changed, the current VPN connection is interrupted. You must enter the new password to re-log in.

Other Configurations

This section describes other optional configurations of the SecoClient.

Blocking Connections to Untrusted Servers

When the SecoClient establishes an SSL VPN tunnel with the peer gateway, it checks the device certificate sent by the gateway.

Right-click the tray icon of the SecoClient and choose Option from the shortcut menu. The Options dialog box is displayed. Select Block connections to untrusted servers.

  • If this option is selected:

    When the SecoClient fails to verify the gateway device certificate, the system displays the alarm "Safety warning: untrusted VPN server certificate!" If you have confirmed that the peer gateway is secure, click Continue to continue establishing the SSL VPN tunnel. If you cannot confirm the security of the peer gateway, click Cancel to stop the tunnel establishment.

  • If this option is deselected:

    When the SecoClient fails to verify the gateway device certificate, the system does not generate any alarm and directly establishes the tunnel.

Setting Automatic Startup upon Power-On

The SecoClient supports automatic startup upon power-on.

Right-click the tray icon of the SecoClient and choose Option from the shortcut menu. The Options dialog box is displayed. Select Automatic startup upon power-on. If this option is selected, the SecoClient automatically starts after the device starts.

Canceling Automatic Login

Right-click the tray icon of the SecoClient and choose Cancel Automatic Login from the shortcut menu. Then, the SecoClient will not automatically start after the device starts.

Changing the UI Language

The SecoClient supports 12 types of UI languages.

Right-click the tray icon of the SecoClient and choose Option from the shortcut menu. The Options dialog box is displayed. You can select a language from the UI Language drop-down list.

    2. Choose Advanced > Network and click Settings under Connection.
    3. Set the proxy shielding information.
