Device Level L2TP VPN: Using L2TP Users Configuration Overview


Creating device-level L2TP VPN is a three stage process.

  • Add L2TP Users

  • Configure L2TP Settings

  • Add VPN rules to Security Policy

For VPNs that use L2TP to provide remote access services, you must add an L2TP user to the security device. An L2TP User has an account on the security device that guards the protected resources in the VPN; when the user attempts to connect to a protected resource, the security device authenticates the user.

To add a L2TP user for a security device, in the security device configuration L2TP/XAuth/Local User, click the Add icon. Enter a name for the user, and then specify:

  • User—Select a preconfigured local user object that is configured for L2TP.

  • Remote Setting—Select a preconfigured remote settings object.

  • IP Pool—Select a preconfigured IP pool object.

  • Static IP—Enter the static IP address of the local user.
