Mobile VPN with L2TP Connections

You can configure your Firebox to host Mobile VPN with L2TP sessions. When the device is configured for Mobile VPN with L2TP, users included in the Mobile VPN with L2TP group can use an L2TP client to make an L2TP connection.

Because the Firebox allows the L2TP connection from any of your users who give the correct credentials, it is important that you make sure that a policy for L2TP VPN sessions that includes only users you want to allow to send traffic over the L2TP VPN is included in your configuration. You can also add these users to a Firebox User Group and add a policy that allows traffic only from this group. The Firebox creates a pre-configured group named L2TP-Users for this purpose.

In Fireware v12.3, the steps to connect to the Mobile VPN with L2TP wizard and to edit the Mobile VPN with L2TP configuration changed. In Fireware v12.2 1 or lower, select VPN > Mobile VPN with L2TP to configure Mobile VPN with L2TP. In Policy Manager v12.2 1 or lower, select VPN > Mobile VPN > L2TP > Configure.

To configure a Mobile VPN with L2TP connection, from Fireware Web UI:

  1. Select VPN > Mobile VPN.
    The Mobile VPN with L2TP selection page appears.
  2. To configure L2TP for the first time, Use the WatchGuard L2TP Setup Wizard.
  3. To edit an existing L2TP configuration, Edit the Mobile VPN with L2TP Configuration.

  1. Select VPN > Mobile VPN > Get Started.
    The Mobile VPN with L2TP selection page appears.
