Features and enhancements in 2.0.7
|Edge Client now has a desktop widget that allows one-click VPN connect and disconnect.
|Previous versions of Edge Client for Android support client certificates for SSL tunnels. Android Edge Client 2.0.7 supports client certificates for DTLS tunnels as well as SSL tunnels.
|The Edge Client UI for Android devices is now optimized to support both smartphones and tablets.
|Edge Client now has improved diagnostics, collecting and displaying the following information:
|Edge Client now supports client certificates from device credential storage for authentication. Users can now use Edge Client to select existing certificates from the device credentials storage or add a new certificate from the local storage. This feature works only with RSA private key, and does not work with FIPS mode enabled. This feature is not supported on Android 4.1.
|Edge Client now shows an authentication error message when the user is prompted to log on and an error occurs.
|Android introduced Routing Policy Database to make routing decisions. Edge Client now prints the routing table database for troubleshooting.
|Users can start and stop Edge Client Lite by typing a URL into the browser. Edge Client Lite presents Edge Client with a blank white user interface with no branding. Connection messages and logon fields are presented on the white background.
|The Network Access resource option "Provide client certificate on Network Access connection when requested" is now supported for tunnel connections, including SSL and DTLS.
|Previously, Edge Client supported the ClientCertID parameter to authenticate the client certificate previously imported by the AddCertificate command. Now, Edge Client provides an alias for existing certificates from the Android KeyChain.
|Edge Client now supports devices with 64-bit CPU.
|Edge Client now has per-app VPN support for Android 5.0.
Known issues in 2.0.7
|When Edge Client uses split tunneling for traffic, after establishing a VPN connection, all DNS queries are sent to the VPN-configured enterprise DNS server.
|Edge Client fails to connect if it was reinstalled after a successful connection. This is an issue on Android 5.0 that causes connections to fail after reinstalling the Edge Client application. To work around this issue, reboot the Android device.
Fixes in 2.0.7
|Previously, Edge Client failed to log on if the domain cookie setting was set in the access profile. This issue is now fixed.
