Activation completed…Erez Ben Ari logging off

As you can guess from the title, this is my last post to this blog. A few weeks ago, I was offered a position as a PM (Program Manager) in the IIS team, and tomorrow is my last day with UAG support. I’ve aspired to be a PM for many years, and that dream has…

UAG SSL Network Tunneling traffic capture

Occasionally, one may need to troubleshoot the UAG Network Tunnling (a.k.a. “the Network Connector”). Normally, traffic capturing is done using tools such as Microsoft’s Network Monitor, or WireShark. If, however, you try to run a capture like that on a UAG client that is connected with the SSL Network Tunneling, you will discover that the…

How to create a static redirector on a UAG trunk

Using UAG as a static redirector is a major overkill, but occasionally, it makes better sense to use an existing server than build a special box just for a redirect. While IIS has a simple option to setup a redirector, making such configuration changes on the IIS on a UAG server is unsupported. In order…

Sending mail to the administrator with UAG

On the UAG portal, you can find an envelope that is a link to create a mail to the site’s administrator (presumably…that’s you!). However, by default, that link is empty and would generate an empty Email. Editing it requires a little bit of customization, and here are the steps: 1. Navigate to the folder <UAG…

Using AutoIT to automate UAG

A common question comes up from people who need to create a complex configuration in UAG, and are looking for a better way to do it instead of manually entering it. For example, creating multiple applications on the UAG portal, rather than going through the application wizard multiple times. Unfortunately, editing the UAG configuration directly…

Endpoint policies galore

If you have a freshly installed UAG server in front of you, you might be considering which Endpoint policies to set for your applications. UAG comes with no less than 27 built-in predefined policies just for Windows computers (plus another 34 policies for Mac and Linux), but their naming doesn’t always indicate what they actually…
