As VMware has discontinued support for NSX-V, new virtual data centers created in the VMware Performance Cloud Platform now use the latest NSX-T networking platform. Unfortunately, VMware has discontinued SSL-VPN functionality with NSX-T. See below for alternatives.

Point-to-Site (P2S) solutions
Here are few of the possible solutions to continue to use the Point-to-Site (P2S) VPN feature with your cloud environment running on Performance Cloud powered by VMware and NSX-T.
Deploy a Network Virtual Appliance (NVA)
Using a Network Virtual Appliance (NVA) like pfSense or Fortigate in your infrastructure, you can benefit of included features with the virtual appliance. Here is the procedure to deploy a NVA with Performance Cloud VMware (NSX-T).
An OpenVPN server can be deployed on a virtual machine in the cloud environment to add the Point-to-Site (P2S) VPN feature. For more information about OpenVPN, please visit https://openvpn.net/community-resources/how-to/
Another VPN solution is WireGuard. WireGuard can easily be deployed in a Linux virtual machine to add the Point-to-Site (P2S) VPN feature to your cloud environment. For more information about deploying WireGuard in your cloud environment, please see this article.
