Configure Android Devices for Mobile VPN with IKEv2

To configure a VPN connection between your Android device and a Firebox, we recommend the free strongSwan app. Recent Android versions do not include native support for IKEv2 VPNs.

To add the VPN connection on your device, you can use the WatchGuard automatic configuration script or manually configure settings on the device.

Mobile VPN with IKEv2 is supported on Fireboxes with Fireware v12.1 and higher.

WatchGuard provides interoperability instructions to help our customers configure WatchGuard products to work with products created by other organizations. If you need more information or technical support about configuring a non-WatchGuard product, see the documentation and support resources for that product.

Automatically Configure VPN Settings

To configure a VPN connection with the WatchGuard automatic configuration script, you must download a compressed .TGZ file from your Firebox. This file contains instructions and configurations scripts for various operating systems. For information about how to download this file, see Configure Client Devices for Mobile VPN with IKEv2.

The automatic configuration script creates a new IKEv2 VPN profile in the strongSwan app on your Android device. It also installs the required CA certificate for the VPN connection.
