    Device-Level Manual Key VPN: Using XAuth Users Overview

    Creating a device-level Manual key VPN is a four stage process.

    • Configure XAuth Users
    • Configure Routes (Route-based only)
    • Configure VPN on Device
    • Add VPN rules to Security Policy

    For VPNs that use IPsec manual key to provide remote access services, you must add an XAuth user to the security device. An XAuth 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 XAuth 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 XAuth.
    • 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.
