Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP) is a tunneling protocol that communicates over port 443. When you publish the SSL Network Tunneling (SSTP) application through Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG), you must make sure not to restrict end user access to the SSTP application by blocking port 443; instead you can block user access to services and protocols that are available over SSTP.

For more information about configuring remote client access with SSTP, see Publishing remote network access with SSTP.

This topic describes how to block end user access to the internal network and all of its services and protocols.
