Vpn to a firewall behind a peplink


#1

we have a fortinet firewall thats sitting behind a peplink balance 50.
is there a way to VPN into that FW directly? what set of rules need to be set on the peplink to allow this ?

If the VPN establishes on a single WAN only, I would recommend the following steps:

  1. Check the preferred WAN under Network> Misc. Settings> Service Passthrough Support> IPsec NAT-T “Route IPsec Site-to-Site VPN”.
  2. Set up port forwarding rules or configure a NAT Map to the Fortinet
  3. Configure inbound firewall rules to allow VPN traffic if the default rule is set to “deny”.
