Quick Start Tutorial
Section III Step 2: Assigning a Virtual IP to the Proxy Agent
K-Secure VPN™ Server assigns fixed virtual IPs based on 1 to 5 conditions. In this step we'll assign
2 virtual IPs to our client computers, based on a single condition - the Computer Name of the client.
To find the computer name of a client, go to the client computer and follow these steps.
- On the Windows Desktop, right-click "My Computer" and select
- In the System Properties window, select the "Computer Name"
- Take note of the Full computer name;
Now go to the server computer and launch K-Secure VPN™ Server. Click
IP Assignments on the left side, and then click Create at
the bottom of the window. The Virtual IP Assignment window shall come up.
Fill in the Computer name on the top, and fill in Virtual IP Address
with the virtual IP address we want to assign, and then click OK. In this tutorial,
JOHN-PC is assigned virtual IP 192.168.1.2 and
AMY-PC is assigned virtual IP 192.168.1.3.
When a fixed virtual IP is assigned this way, next time when the client connects to our server it will
always be assigned the virtual IP address as long as the computer name remains unchanged. To verify
the correct virtual IP is indeed assigned to AMY-PC, follow these steps:
Start K-Secure VPN™ Server;
From AMY-PC, launch K-Secure VPN™ Client, click Client Status, and then
click Start VPN Client;
From the server computer, launch K-Secure VPN™ Server and click Peers192.168.1.3 under the "Virtual IP" column;
We are now ready to create the Proxy Rule. Click next
so we get our hands dirty.
