Generate and Distribute the L2TP Mobile Client Profile

After you activate and configure Mobile VPN with L2TP, you can generate the mobile app configuration file to use with the WatchGuard Mobile VPN app for iOS devices. A single configuration file is used for all users who connect from the WatchGuard VPN client app on iOS devices.

Before you generate the Mobile VPN with L2TP profile, make sure that you have configured Mobile VPN with L2TP in a way that is compatible with the WatchGuard Mobile VPN app for iOS. For more information, see Configure Mobile VPN with L2TP for Use with iOS Devices.

Generate the Mobile VPN with L2TP Profile

On the Firebox, generate the end user profile for the WatchGuard Mobile VPN app for iOS,

Send the Profile and Encryption Password

After you generate the L2TP.wgm file, you must send it to the iOS users.

  1. Send the Mobile VPN with L2TP .wgm profile, to the iOS users as an email attachment.
  2. Use a secure method to communicate the encryption password for the profile to the iOS users.

For security reasons, we recommend that you do not send the encryption password or the user name and password for authentication to your mobile users by email. Because email is not secure, an unauthorized user could get the information and gain access to your internal network. Give the user the information by telling it to the user, or by some other method that does not allow an unauthorized person to intercept it.

The iOS mobile user must open the .wgm email file attachment on the iOS device on which the WatchGuard Mobile VPN app is installed. When the user opens the attachment, the WatchGuard Mobile VPN app launches. The WatchGuard Mobile VPN app requires the user to type the encryption password before it uses the .wgm profile to create an L2TP VPN configuration the iOS VPN client.

For detailed steps for the iOS users, see Import the L2TP Configuration to the iOS VPN Client.
