Before you configure your Firebox for Mobile VPN with IPSec, make sure you understand the system requirements for the mobile VPN client you want to use.
- You can install the WatchGuard IPSec Mobile VPN client software on a computer that uses Windows or macOS. For more information, see IPSec Mobile VPN Client Requirements.
- You can install the Shrew Soft VPN client on a computer that uses Windows 7 or 8. The Shrew Soft VPN client does not support Windows 8.1 or higher.
WatchGuard supports VPN tunnels created with the Shrew Soft VPN client only if you install the client on an operating system supported by the Shrew Soft client. For more information about the Shrew Soft client, see About the Shrew Soft VPN Client in the WatchGuard Knowledge Base.
