The following combinations of operating system (OS), browser, and Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) versions are supported for SGOS on Symantec ProxySG and Advanced Secure Gateway (ASG):
This document discusses both the legacy VPM and the Web VPM that was introduced in SGOS version 188.8.131.52.
Supported versions are the OS, browser, and JRE versions that Symantec tested and validated for SGOS and Advanced Secure Gateway 6.6.x. Using other browsers, OSes, and JREs in your deployment might yield unexpected results and is unsupported.
Note: For systems running Java 11, see Support for Java 11 on ProxySG and Advanced Secure Gateway appliances
You can access the Management Console (in Advanced Secure Gateway, click the Proxy tab) using Java Web Start, or directly in a browser.
The Management Console Launcher (Java Web Start) provides an alternative for deployments that cannot use the legacy method of accessing the console directly in a browser. The Launcher allows you to manage and launch multiple SGOS and Advanced Secure Gateway Management Console instances from a single interface. See Download the Management Console Launcher JNLP file to launch multiple Management Consoles for details.
To continue using the legacy Management Console, you must meet the deployment requirements described in the Administration Guide, including a supported version of Java 8. Internet Explorer 11 is recommended.
