FortiGate-6000 IPsec VPN

FortiOS 6.0 for FortiGate-6000 supports the following IPsec VPN features:

  • Interface-based IPsec VPN (also called route-based IPsec VPN) is supported.
  • Static routes can point at IPsec VPN interfaces and can be used for routing the traffic inside the IPsec VPN tunnel.
  • Dynamic routing (RIP, OSPF, BGP) over IPsec VPN tunnels is supported.
  • Remote networks with 16- to 32-bit netmasks are supported.
  • Site-to-Site IPsec VPN is supported.
  • Dialup IPsec VPN is supported. The FortiGate-6000 can be the dialup server or client.
  • IPv4 clear-text traffic (IPv4 over IPv4 or IPv4 over IPv6) is supported.

FortiOS 6.0 for FortiGate-6000 does not support the following IPsec VPN features:

  • Policy-based IPsec VPN is not supported. Only tunnel or interface mode IPsec VPN is supported.
  • Policy routes cannot be used for communication over IPsec VPN tunnels.
  • Remote networks with 0- to 15-bit netmasks are not supported. Remote networks with 16- to 32-bit netmasks are supported.
  • IPv6 clear-text traffic (IPv6 over IPv4 or IPv6 over IPv6) is not supported.
  • Load-balancing IPsec VPN tunnels to multiple FPCs is not supported. IPsec VPN load balancing should be disabled. By default, all IPsec VPN traffic is handled by the primary FPC.
  • IPsec SA synchronization between HA peers is not supported. After an HA failover, IPsec VPN tunnels have to be re-initialized.
