Dear All,
Recently I got USG20-VPN firewall and want to understand step by step VPN configuration so users can connect to network via remote location using their iPads. I also want remote users to access network resources once they are connected. Can someone please guide me in the right documentation or videos or explain here the steps to follow. 

I would highly appreciate a response from some expert.

Thank you in advance
Regards,
DK

    Hi @DK22,

    You can follow the steps in CONFIGURATION > Quick Setup > VPN Setup > VPN Settings for L2TP VPN Settings to configure L2TP VPN on USG20-VPN.


    Note: The IP Address Pool for L2TP VPN cannot conflict with WAN/LAN/DMZ or any existing subnets even if they are not in use.


    Then go to Object > User/Group > User to add L2TP users.


    Configuration on iPhone/iPad

    If USG20-VPN is placed behind a NAT router, here is the guide for your reference.

    Hello,

    I tried the advised steps but it is not working. My wan internal interface IP is 192.168.1.115.

    Firewall IP is 192.168.10.1 and DHCP is assigning range from 192.168.10.33

    I want users to connect via VPN and use the server which is using 192.168.10.33 IP.

    Can you please explain me what I have to do to make it work. what IP I have to give in range Pool so users can connect and access server.

    I would appreciate a response soon.

    regards,
    DK

    Hi @DK22,

    Is it the topology in your network?

    What is the WAN IP of the router?

    About IP Address Pool for L2TP VPN users, just set a subnet which doesn't conflict with other existing subnet.

    Since 192.168.10.0/24 and 192.168.1.0/24 are already used, assign another subnet for L2TP VPN pool. For example: 192.168.60.0/24.
