How to configure and install VPN Connect for MFA

If using a Windows VPN connection, you can install this tool ("UserLock.VPN.Connect.msi", available in UserLock installation folder of the UserLock server) on the end user computers to allow users a better user experience for authenticating to VPN sessions with MFA. This tool also allows enrollment in MFA via a VPN connection.

For Admins:


VPN Microsoft pre-configured

UserLock Anywhere and UserLock IIS MFA features have to be installed.

If you have not already installed these components to protect IIS sessions with MFA or remote connections with UserLock Anywhere, you will need to install them. You do not need to complete the entire installation, just the following steps in the links below:

Group Policy settings

UserLock VPN Connect can be configured manually or automatically.

However you can configure automatically UserLock VPN Connect through Microsoft Group Policies.

It is also possible to deploy settings parameters through Microsoft Group Policies using a 'Group Policy Administrative Template' that we provide (compatible with Desktop Agents installed through the console, automatically, through MSI, manually...).

In the UserLock installation folder (by default 'c:\Program files[ (x86)]\ISDecisions\UserLock'), you will find this 'Group Policy Administrative template' named 'VpnConnect.adm'. Install the template in the 'Group policy' you want to use to deploy settings parameters of UserLock VPN Connect.

Once the template has been added, you can go to 'Administrative templates' and display 'UserLock' then ‘VPN Connect’ (use 'Classic administrative templates' in Windows Server 2008 and higher).

For End Users
