Using the SOFTNET Security Client V4.0 (SSC V4) you configure a PC/PG so that it can automatically establish a secure IPsec tunnel connection in the VPN (Virtual Private Network) to one or more of the security modules below:
- SCALANCE S
- SCALANCE M875
PG/PC applications like NCM Diagnose and STEP 7 can access over a tunnel connection devices or networks in an internal network protected by the security module.
Secure IPsec tunnel connections in the VPN (Virtual Private Network) are not enabled between SSC V4 and CPx43-1 Advanced V3.
With SOFTNET Security Client V4.0 HF1 and higher it is possible to establish an IPsec tunnel connection to the CPx43-1 Advanced V3.
