PPP Over Cellular on USG firewall

Hi,
I have a USG60 and like to check if it may be possible to initiate PPP connection over cellular? I tried to create the PPP profile however from the base interface, I dont see cellular for selection; thus I like to check if it may support PPP over cellular? For the cellular, it connected via USB modem

Any suggestion is appreciated :)

    Hi @cwtang0102,

    Welcome to Zyxel community. :)
    Can you share more information about this scenario? Is it only on specific service provider ?
    In general case, most dongle can dial up directly for Internet access.
  • Hi,
    For the use case, its to make use of vpn service providers like purevpn/nordvpn/etc... to provide a public ip address so it may be accessible from internet for remote access to the zyxel or hosting service. I understand not all service providers provide public ip address on cellular which the vpn service providers helps to address the limitation on the service providers.

    I like to check if it may support PPP over cellular in this case?

  • I like to check if Zyxel may have a product which have inbuilt sim and 3G/4G/5G modem and also supporting VPN service both dial in (Remote access) and dial out (Lan to LAN including PPP over cellular)? 

    I am considering to upgrade my existing usg60 if there is one :)

    Hi @cwtang0102,
    It may need two box solution. Zyxel LTE router run as sim modem, and VPN service is on Firewall USG60.
