    Likely we will look at that after wireguard.

    Have you added the IPSec v2 VPN site-to-site connection to the Firewalla Gold. I know I need it to set up VPN tunnels to my vendors as many don't use OpenVPN.

    What vendor are you connecting to?   

    The problem with site to site is, it requires extra settings (routing) on both sides, so even there is a connection, routing setup may not be fully automatic, this is something a challenge for us.

    I work with software vendors like Azure, AWS, LIMS Software Providers and more. I work with laboratories as a management consultant and need to interface with many different people constantly.

    The ability to establish site to site vpn tunnels with non firewalla devices would be great.

    It is more of the protocol, and how the other side setup the traffic forwarding back to firewalla.  Is it IPSec VPN? or OpenVPN we are talking about?

    It is a standard IPSec VPN.  I really think this is a feature that at minimum the Gold needs to support.  I understand that it will be complicated, but every other product at a similar price point supports this

    Agree. I have customers with other firewalls, Juniper, PaloAlto, Cisco, Fortinet, etc.. I need to establish Ipsec tunnels. It would be a typical route based vpn setup, phase 1, phase 2, with specific routes pointed to tunnel interfaces, access policies.. etc..

    We started IPSec VPN halfway and paused it due to an overwhelming request for wireguard.  So likely once we get wireguard out, we will get IPSec VPN.   Likely in 1.973.  (Or 1.974)

    Where is this in the queue?  anyone who is capable of setting up an IPsec S2S tunnel knows how to set up the routing already.  I have it working just fine between a couple $60 EdgeRouter-X boxes from UI.

    is it possible from the CLI?

    Add my vote to this as a feature request, I also sent an email to help@

    We may start to experiment with IPSec in-app version 1.49

    I signed up and am testing the beta box code and the beta of the app, so just let me know and I’ll be happy to test it out and report back.

    Great product overall, just missing the standard ipsec l2tp to make it perfect i guess

    If you are interested, please let us know what the end point you are trying to talk to. (be specific), I think our developer is looking for testers.  Please send email to help@firewalla.com with that info if you can.

    Looking to use with Azure. Here is some very specific information, and even instructions should you have access to free Azure credits for development.

    I actually only purchased the unit specifically for this purpose. I felt like I read everything there was on it and specifically chose it for the Site-to-Site VPN capability. Somehow I still managed to miss the glaring support statements claiming it was only site-to-site capable with a second unit which is completely useless for me. But I didn't have time to immediately try to set it up when I got it and didn't learn that until too late. Took about 3months before I had the opportunity to realize it was not able to serve its primary purpose and once I did, I was past my return periods unfortunately.

    I'm still watching these threads and hoping I'll be able to put it to use soon, as I had seen the past comments of near future release of functionality/support.

    So, I'm definitely up for installing the beta and trying to get it configured as time allows, or possibly even providing the connection information to a staging configuration that you could test with directly.

    We started experimenting with Anyconnect VPN in 1.50, but ... that is proven to be much more costly than what we envisioned. This means, only a very small number of customers use it, and testing that protocol is extremely expensive for us.
