Configure Manual BOVPN Gateways

A BOVPN gateway is a connection point for one or more tunnels. To create a tunnel, you must set up gateways on both the local and remote endpoint devices. To configure these gateways, you must specify:

  • Credential method — Either pre-shared keys or an IPSec Firebox certificate.
    For information about how to use certificates for BOVPN authentication, see Certificates for Branch Office VPN (BOVPN) Tunnel Authentication.
  • Location of local and remote gateway endpoints, either by IP address or domain information.
  • Settings for Phase 1 of the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) negotiation. This phase defines the security association, or the protocols and settings that the gateway endpoints will use to communicate and protect data that is passed in the negotiation.

Configure the gateways for each branch office VPN endpoint.

Run the BOVPN Gateway Configuration Report

After you add a gateway, you can run a report to see a summary of all gateway settings. This report can be useful if you need to troubleshoot the VPN. It can also make it easier to compare the configured settings with the settings of the remote VPN endpoint device.

To run the report from Fireware Web UI or Policy Manager:

  1. In the Gateways dialog box, select a configured gateway.
  2. Click Report.
  3. To add details about tunnels that use this gateway, select the Show Tunnel Details check box.

For more information about this report, see Use the BOVPN Configuration Reports.
