Import the End-User Profile

When the WatchGuard Mobile VPN client starts for the first time after you install it, it prompts you to manually configure a profile. Click No in the Windows client, or Cancel in the Mac OS X client to skip the manual profile configuration step. Then, use the steps in the subsequent sections to import the mobile VPN configuration .wgx or .ini file to the WatchGuard Mobile VPN client.

Import the End-User Profile in the Windows Client

To import a Mobile VPN configuration .wgx or .ini file to the WatchGuard Mobile VPN Client for Windows:

  1. From your Windows desktop, select Start > All Programs > WatchGuard Mobile VPN > Mobile VPN Monitor.
  2. Select Configuration > Profiles.
  3. Click Add/Import.
    The Profile Import Wizard starts.
  4. On the Select User Profile screen, browse to the location of the .wgx or .ini configuration file.
  5. Click Next.
  6. If you use a .wgx file, on the Decrypt User Profile screen, type the passphrase. The passphrase is case-sensitive.
  7. Click Next.
  8. On the Overwrite or add Profile screen, you can select to overwrite a profile of the same name. This is useful if your network administrator gives you a new .wgx file to import.
  9. Click Next.
  10. On the Authentication screen, you can select whether to type the user name and password that you use to authenticate the VPN tunnel.
    If you keep these fields empty, you are prompted to enter your user name and password each time you connect.
    If you type your user name and password, the Firebox stores them and you do not have to enter this information each time you connect. However, this is a security risk. You can also type just your user name and keep the Password text box empty.
  11. Click Next.
  12. Click Finish.
    The computer is now ready to use Mobile VPN with IPSec.
