Add New Users to the PPTP-Users Group

To connect to the Firebox with a PPTP VPN tunnel, mobile users must type their user names and passphrases to authenticate. The Firebox uses this information to authenticate the user to the Firebox.

When you enable PPTP in your Firebox configuration, a default user group is created automatically. This user group is called PPTP-Users. You see this group name when you create a new user or add user names or groups to policies. Users must be a member of this group to make a PPTP connection.

For more information on Firebox groups, see Configure Your Firebox as an Authentication Server.

If you use a RADIUS or VACMAN middleware server for authentication, you must create the PPTP-Users group on your authentication server and add users to that group. For more information, see the documentation for your authentication server.

If you use the Firebox for authentication, you must add users and make them members of the PPTP-Users group.

Configure Policies to Allow Mobile VPN with PPTP Traffic

Mobile VPN with PPTP users do not have access privileges through a Firebox by default. To give remote users access to specified network resources, you must add user names, or the PPTP-Users group, as sources and destinations in individual policy definitions.

For more information, see Configure Policies For Mobile VPN with PPTP

To use WebBlocker to control remote user access, add PPTP users or the PPTP-Users group to a proxy policy that controls WebBlocker.

If you assign addresses from a trusted network to PPTP users, the traffic from the PPTP user is not considered to be trusted. All Mobile VPN with PPTP traffic is not trusted by default. Regardless of assigned IP address, policies must be created to allow PPTP users to get access to network resources.
