Sophos SSL-VPN with MFA client password save


Recently I have rolled out SSL-VPN solutions for several clients, all of them are complaining about the inability to save their passwords and state that the Sophos client is very user-unfriendly. I agree in this and want a solution.

MFA is mandatory. A situation where username and passwords are saved and filled automatically is fine, clients can add the MFA code after this. But this does not work:

- Saving the password with MFA works, but makes the connection, obviously, fail on the second login.

- Saving without MFA deletes the credentials because the login failed.

We use the Sophos connect client, downloaded from the VPN-Portal with MFA. The Firewall uses version 19.01.

Looking forward to any solution or any posts that are on this topic.

Kind regards,
