Creating an IPSec Roadwarrior Connection

Note: This topic applies to the Hearst Release.

Note: A Unified Threat Management serial is required to configure VPNs. For more information, contact your Smoothwall representative.

Before creating a roadwarrior connection using IPSec, check the following list to assess whether it is the right choice:

Each connection can be routed to a different internal network.
Each connection can use different types of cryptographic and authentication settings.
Client software will need to be installed on roadwarrior systems.

Also note that the same advanced options that are available when configuring IPSec site-to-site VPNs are also available to IPSec roadwarriors. This includes overriding the default local certificate.
