Configure Client Devices for Mobile VPN with IKEv2

Before you can use computers or mobile devices as Mobile VPN with IKEv2 remote clients, you must configure and establish the IKEv2 connection on each client device. Many client operating systems include a native IKEv2 client. For Android devices, you must download the third-party strongSwan app.

The steps to configure an IKEv2 connection are different for each client operating system. We provide instructions and scripts to help you configure an IKEv2 VPN connection on devices with these operating systems:

  • Windows 8.1 and 10
  • macOS
  • iOS
  • Android (strongSwan app)

Instructions and scripts for all operating systems are included in a single file that you can download from your Firebox. You can run the scripts on your devices to automatically configure the IKEv2 VPN client. Or, you can follow the instructions to manually configure the IKEv2 VPN client. If you manually configure a client, you must add the rootca.crt or rootca.pem certificate to your device and follow the instructions in the README file.

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.
