Device Level L2TP VPN: Using L2TP Configuration Overview
To connect to an L2TP VPN tunnel, the L2TP RAS user uses the IP address and WINS/DNS information assigned by the user’s ISP. However, when the L2TP RAS user sends VPN traffic through the tunnel, the security device assigns a new IP address and WINS/DNS information that enables the traffic to reach the destination network.
Enter a name for the L2TP VPN, and then specify the following information as described in Table 1.
