What's the difference between Sauce Connect Proxy and IPSec VPN?

You can use Sauce Connect Proxy and IPSec VPN to solve the same problem, which is to establish a secure connection between applications hosted on an internal server and Sauce Labs virtual machines that you use for your testing platform. The difference between them is that IPSec VPN is based on an industry standard, while Sauce Connect Proxy is a proprietary solution, and Sauce Connect Proxy is available for use by any Sauce Labs account, while IPSec VPN is an additional feature that requires an additional fee. 

What devices are available for use with IPSec VPN?

Currently you can access virtual devices, including emulators, simulators, and virtual desktops, in the US data center or the EU data center.

How is the IPSec VPN Tunnel secured?

See the section on Security in the IPSec VPN Architecture topic.

Is there a High Availability option for IPSec VPN?

Currently Sauce Labs only supports dual-tunnel-mode with the Sauce Labs data center as single point of failure. A high availability mode with redundant Sauce Labs data centers may be offered in the future.

How do I test with internal servers using self-signed certificates through IPSec?
