Add Users to a Firebox Mobile VPN Group

To open a Mobile VPN tunnel with the Firebox, remote users type their user name and password to authenticate. The Firebox uses this information to authenticate the user to the Firebox. To authenticate, users must be part of a Mobile VPN with IPSec group.

For information about how to create a Mobile VPN with IPSec group, see Configure the Firebox for Mobile VPN with IPSec.

For more information on Firebox groups, see Types of Firebox Authentication.

To add users to a group if you use a third-party authentication server, use the instructions provided in your vendor documentation.

TDR Host Sensor Enforcement

In Fireware v12.5.4 or higher, you can enable TDR Host Sensor Enforcement for mobile VPN groups.

For Mobile VPN with IPSec, to enable TDR Host Sensor Enforcement for a mobile VPN group, you must edit the group settings in the Authentication > Users and Groups configuration. TDR Host Sensor Enforcement settings do not appear in the Mobile VPN with IPSec configuration.

For all other mobile VPN methods, you can enable TDR Host Sensor Enforcement for a group in either of these locations:

  • Mobile VPN configuration
  • Authentication > Users and Groups configuration
