SonicWALL VPN

Your rating: None (2 votes)

Introduction

SonicWALL is a manufacturer of firewalls, VPN concentrators, SSLVPN devices, and the like. The following was created on my NSA 3500 running SonicOS Enhanced 5.6.0.3-40o.

The built-in SonicWALL GroupVPN policy may be set up to allow connections from iOS devices. Unlike Cisco VPN and Juniper VPN devices, however, these cannot be configured to use certificate authentication, and cannot be configured for on-demand VPN access. However, for customers with existing SonicWALL infrastructure, this can be useful information.

To configure, we need to do the following steps:

  1. Set up the L2TP server
  2. Create a group with VPN access
  3. Assign users to this group
  4. Modify the built-in GroupVPN policy for iOS

Welcome to Enterprise iOS!

I was going to use the tag line "Help for oxymorons," but I was afraid you'd find that insulting.

But an apparent contradiction it is: commodity devices from a consumer company penetrating a huge number of the world's largest businesses.

And right at the intersection of IT standards and user expectations is...a tremendous abyss.

As IT professionals, we can't manage these devices the old way. How would you deploy 50, 500 or 1,000 iPads? How do you update intranet apps to run on the new devices? VPN? Certificates? Policies?

Welcome to the neighborhood. Enterprise iOS is a community of IT Pros working to integrate the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. We've set up a blog (for news), forums (Q&A), and a wiki (for resources and best practices). We're going to keep the marketing to a minimum and focus on the technical. We're not going to have ads.

I encourage your contributions: posts, corrections, questions, answers. Welcome!
