For me this is unique, but I'm probably sure someone else has done this. Sophos UTM 9We have a software vendor that needs access to the software server they have provided. The software is administered through an internal web browser connection. We don't want to have to screenshare when ever this vendor needs to access the administrator account.I would like to give them a VPN account, but restrict it to only the URL.
Is this possible or is there a more efficient way to do this?
Thank you for your help!
I forgot to mention, we do not want to make this URL published to the world. Restrict only to the VPN user.
In reply to GoJoeGo:
You can do this using HTML5 VPN Portal under Remote Access.
In reply to PatrickLee:
... or you unselect "automatic packetfilter rules" within VPN configuration and creates some firewall rules using "XYZ (User Network)".
Agreed with PatrickLee - this is the ideal use case for the HTML5 VPN. You can even use OTP with the User Portal with it required only for specific users.

I can think of multiple ways to handle this.
HTML VPN to a Web Resource (as previously proposed)
SSL VPN to Transparent Web Proxy

Thank you for the suggestions. The HTML5 Portal sounds interesting. I like the idea that the user does not have to install anything. No history with it, but onward!
The HTML5 VPN Portal worked like a charm!
Folks, our external client has access to the internal website.
However, when they click on a function to upload a file, it will not point to their local machine. Is there an option somewhere to give that throughput?
Don't think so. Remember that you are running a browser inside a browser. That would be a reason to use one of the other configurations.
