FortiGate-6000 Handbook

Adding source and destination subnets to IPsec VPN phase 2 configurations

If your FortiGate-6000 configuration includes IPsec VPNs you should enhance your IPsec VPN Phase 2 configurations as described in this section. Because the FortiGate-6000 only allows 16-bit to 32-bit routes, you must add one or more destination subnets to your IPsec VPN phase 2 configuration for FortiGate-6000 using the following command:

config vpn ipsec phase2-interface

edit "to_fgt2"

set phase1name <name>

set src-subnet <IP> <netmask>

set dst-subnet <IP> <netmask>

end

Where

src-subnet is the subnet protected by the FortiGate-6000 that you are configuring and from which users connect to the destination subnet. Configuring the source subnet is optional but recommended.

dst-subnet is the destination subnet behind the remote IPsec VPN endpoint. Configuring the destination subnet is required.

Example basic IPsec VPN Phase 2 configuration

In a simple configuration such as the one below with an IPsec VPN between two remote subnets you can just add the subnets to the phase 2 configuration.

Enter the following command to add the source and destination subnets to the FortiGate-6000 IPsec VPN Phase 2 configuration.

config vpn ipsec phase2-interface

edit "to_fgt2"

set phase1name "to_fgt2"

set src-subnet 172.16.1.0 255.255.255.0

set dst-subnet 172.16.2.0 255.255.255.0

end

Example multiple subnet IPsec VPN Phase 2 configuration

In a more complex configuration, such as the one below with a total of 5 subnets you still need to add all of the subnets to the Phase 2 configuration. In this case you can create a firewall address for each subnet and the addresses to address groups and add the address groups to the Phase 2 configuration.

Enter the following commands to create firewall addresses for each subnet.

config firewall address

edit "local_subnet_1"

set subnet 4.2.1.0 255.255.255.0

next

edit "local_subnet_2"

set subnet 4.2.2.0 255.255.255.0

next

edit "remote_subnet_3"

set subnet 4.2.3.0 255.255.255.0

next

edit "remote_subnet_4"

set subnet 4.2.4.0 255.255.255.0

next

edit "remote_subnet_5"

set subnet 4.2.5.0 255.255.255.0

end

And then put the five firewall addresses into two firewall address groups.

config firewall addrgrp

edit "local_group"

set member "local_subnet_1" "local_subnet_2"

next

edit "remote_group"

set member "remote_subnet_3" "remote_subnet_4" "remote_subnet_5"

end

Now, use the firewall address groups in the Phase 2 configuration:

config vpn ipsec phase2-interface

edit "to-fgt2"

set phase1name "to-fgt2"

set src-addr-type name

set dst-addr-type name

set src-name "local_group"

set dst-name "remote_group"

end

end

Now, use the firewall address groups in the Phase 2 configuration:

config vpn ipsec phase2-interface

edit "to-fgt2"

set phase1name "to-fgt2"

set src-addr-type name

set dst-addr-type name

set src-name "local_group"

set dst-name "remote_group"
