Hi buddy, you have to configure the Edge Client as an OIDC client. I built and posted a video explaining the steps in my Youtube channel :

Hope this help


thanks for this - my authentication provider is forgerock and oAuth with openid is working -

the problem is the Edge client - as you showed in your video it should open the browser and authenticate and VPN should establish - and that happens - but it also opens its embidded browser where yubikey fails.

Question how do i configure it in a way where iy does not open the embidded browser?embeddedembedded

If the embedded browser opens, it means OIDC edge client config is wrong. It should open a real browser window.

Check your edge client config.

Hi - couple of questions 

1 - under - 

i have configured it as a client - with client ID and secret 
2 - and in visual policy editot - i have used oAuth client - instead of oAuth Scope
and all of this works fine when i use the browser - but the edge client has issues 
what do i need to do 
do i need to configure 0Auth server entity as resource - 
and then use 0Auth Scope in visual policy editor?
and my OAuth server is Forgerock
