Connection Modes and Display Options

Connection Modes

Gateway Mode: Clients are connected with the 2X Secure Client Gateway and the session connection is tunneled through the first available connection.  This mode is ideal for servers which are only reachable via the gateway and do not require a high level of security.

Direct Mode: Clients first connect to the 2X Secure Client Gateway for the best available Server and then connect directly with that particular Server.  This is best used when the client and the server are on the same network.

Direct Mode is the most efficient connection mode, since the gateway is temporary with a minimal data load.

Gateway SSL Mode: This connection is created as in the Direct Mode option, but the connection to the 2X Secure Client Gateway is encrypted.

Direct SSL Mode: Clients first connect to the 2X Secure Client Gateway for the best available with an encrypted connection. Server and then connect directly with that particular Server.
