Configure iOS and macOS Devices for Mobile VPN with IKEv2

You can configure the native IKEv2 VPN client on iOS and macOS devices for a VPN connection to your Firebox. To add the VPN connection on your device, you can use the WatchGuard automatic configuration script or manually configure the settings.

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 configuration scripts for different 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 connection. It also installs the required CA certificate for the VPN connection.

On iOS devices, you must type the user name and password when prompted. If do not specify a user name and password, the VPN profile is created but does not work.

Manually Configure VPN Settings

You can manually add a new VPN connection rather than run the configuration script.

On iOS devices, you must type the user name and password when prompted. If do not specify a user name and password, the VPN profile is created but does not work.
