If you are using the following deployment method and configuration, clients receive a browser error if their first request is HTTPS and their session is not authenticated to WSS before the first connection attempt.
Access Method: IPsec VPN
Authentication: Auth Connector with Captive Portal
SSL Interception: Enabled\Disabled
Browser error on IPsec VPN if the first request is HTTPS (SSL enabled/disabled)
Here is some sample verbiage of error pages from different web browsers:
Internet Explorer:This page can't be displayed. Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to https://www.example.com again.
Chrome:This site can't be reached. www.example.com unexpectedly closed the connection.
Firefox:Secure Connection Failed. The connection to www.example.com was interrupted while the page was loading.
This is the expected behavior for current WSS solution.
