Chrome 42 removed support for NPAPI by default. This disables a number of plug-ins, including Java. You can bypass the browser’s Java plug-in by doing the following:
Contact your application owner to have access enabled.
If this does not fix the problem, contact your application owner.
Many organizations have policies governing inactive or unregistered accounts. Please contact your application owner to have your account enabled.
SecureLink customers can control access to their environment by disabling remote access until needed. If your connect option is grayed out, your access has been temporarily disabled and will have to be enabled by your customer.
Check your browser version – SecureLink supports the following browser versions:
* – There are minor defects in the layout of the user interface when viewed with IE7, due to its incomplete support for modern standards – these visual artifacts do not impact connectivity † – Chrome for Mac is 32-bit only and therefore incompatible on Mac OS X Lion or Mavericks, which use the 64-bit Java 7 plug-in – modern Macs with Java 7 should use Firefox – see Chrome issue 18323
Verify your Java version
Clear your cache
You can clear the Java cache in most cases by going to the Windows Control Panel – Java- Temporary Internet Files – Delete Files. To clear the browser cache in most I.E. versions, go to Tools – Internet Options – General Tab – Temporary Internet Files Section – Delete files. To clear the browser cache in Firefox you choose Tools – Options – Privacy – Private Data Section – Settings and check the Cache option, then click OK. Or you can simply choose Tools – Clear Private Data, which will clear private settings.
Delete your SlinkSW directory
Your first option is to contact your customer’s application owner or SecureLink Administrator for assistance. Additionally, you may contact SecureLink support by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be helpful (and almost always help us resolve your issue more quickly) to include the logs from your connection attempts when contacting SecureLink support. The instructions below will help retrieve these logs.
Retrieving Connection Logs
The Gatekeeper requires internet access to communicate with your vendor’s SecureLink server, but there are no firewall changes necessary to enable your vendor to connect using SecureLink. If the Gatekeeper is installed on a system that does not have internet access, rules should be set on the firewall to allow SSH and HTTP access outbound directly to your vendor’s SecureLink server.
The Gatekeeper does not need a dedicated workstation or server.
The Gatekeeper installation does not require a server reboot.
To access your Gatekeeper you will need to navigate to your vendor’s SecureLink server, with your vendor provided URL, and log-in with your provided credentials. The URL and credentials will automatically be emailed to you when your vendor creates your Gatekeeper account.
Local access to the Gatekeeper is also available and provides limited administrative functionality. The Gatekeeper can be accessed locally from the Windows start menu under All Programs > SecureLink > SecureLink Gatekeeper.
You can also access the Gatekeeper from your preferred browser by typing http://127.0.0.1:4680 in the address bar.
If you are a Gatekeeper Administrator, the Gatekeeper’s default state after installation is “Disabled.” To enable the Gatekeeper, log in to your vendor’s SecureLink server as a Gatekeeper admin using the provided credentials. Click on the Connection Status link. From there, you can enable access indefinitely or provide an access window. (The Gatekeeper will return to a disabled state after the access window has closed.)
Access notification emails are controlled by each individual Gatekeeper user. Each Gatekeeper you have access to will be listed under My Account with the ability to toggle notifications on or off for that Gatekeeper. To send notification emails to additional users, navigate to My Gatekeepers > Users and edit the user you wish to receive notification emails.
The Gatekeeper provides you with the ability to store, mask, and pass login credentials for your vendors. Credentials can be stored for RDP, SSH, and Telnet access.
Select RDP/SSH/Telnet Credentials from the Settings menu. Enter the required information on the corresponding credentials screen.
Once the credentials have been added, they will need to be associated with the appropriate server or host. Select Vendor Privilege Settings from the Settings menu. Click Add New Host and enter the host or IP of the devices you would like to enable access to your vendor. Add the RDP or SSH service the vendor requires and attach the created credential to this service.
The Gatekeeper stores information regarding who has connected, where they connected from, when they connected, what servers were accessed, which ports and services were used for access, and what files were accessed.
The Gatekeeper can also record RDP and Telnet sessions.
To access the Gatekeeper reports select Report from the Gatekeeper menu.
The SecureLink Gatekeeper info site is a great place to learn about your Gatekeeper installation.
