You can connect to the SSL VPN by using one of the following modes:
Kiosk mode is the usual choice for computers not controlled by the organization, such as home computers and computers in Web-browsing kiosks. When you connect to SSL VPN in Kiosk mode, only a limited set of applications are SSL enabled. Applications that were opened before the SSL VPN connection was established are not enabled for SSL.
You will be connected to SSL VPN in the Kiosk mode if:

You have administrator rights or root privileges to the workstation, but the system administrator has forced you to access SSL VPN in Kiosk mode only. For more information on this, see
For more information on using the Kiosk mode, see Section 2.0, Accessing SSL VPN in Kiosk Mode.
The Enterprise mode is the usual choice for computers that are controlled by the organization, such as notebooks provided by the organization for employees.When you connect to SSL VPN in Enterprise mode, all applications are enabled for SSL, regardless of whether they were opened before or after connecting to the SSL VPN. Also, all the applications including your desktop applications and toolbar applications are SSL enabled.
You can connect to SSL VPN in the Enterprise mode if:
You have administrator or root access to a machine.
You are a non-admin or a non-root user of the machine, but you know the credentials of the admin user.
The system administrator has pre-installed the SSL VPN thin client components on your machine.

For more information on pre-installing the thin client components, see Novell Access Manager 3.0 SP4 Installation Guide.
