Providing a customized hostname for users to connect to the Client UI provides a better experience than remembering an IP address. It’s easier to update a DNS A Record than requiring users to reinstall client profiles if the IP address changes for any reason. Lastly, SSL certificates require a proper FQDN hostname in order to function properly, which makes this step required to set that up.

  1. Get your static IP address
  2. Create a new DNS A Record (with your website host, most likely). See Oracle for step-by-step instructions.
  3. Link the IP address to your chosen subdomain (e.g.: vpn.companyname.com)
  4. Login to your Access Server Admin Web UI
  5. Navigate to Configuration > Network Settings
  6. Enter your subdomain in the Hostname or IP Address field
  7. Click on Save and Update Running Server

You will have to wait for the DNS servers for propagation, which may take up to a day or two. Once updated, your users can go directly to your subdomain to download clients and configuration files.
