About L2TP Connections from an iOS Device
Apple iOS devices include a native Cisco VPN client. You can use this client to make an L2TP VPN connection to a Firebox. The easiest method to configure an iOS device to use Mobile VPN with L2TP is to use the WatchGuard Mobile VPN app for iOS. This free app enables users to quickly import the connection settings from a WatchGuard L2TP mobile client profile to the native VPN client on the iOS device.
The WatchGuard Mobile VPN app for iOS requires:
- iPhone, iPad, or iPad with Retina display
- iOS version 5.x or 6.x
To set up Mobile VPN with L2TP for connections from an iOS device you must complete these steps:
- Configure Mobile VPN with L2TP for Use with iOS Devices
- Generate and Distribute the L2TP Mobile Client Profile
- Import the L2TP Configuration to the iOS VPN Client
For instructions to manually configure the native iOS VPN client, see Manually Configure L2TP on an iOS Device.
