Site-to-site IPsec VPN with certificate authentication

This example shows you how to create a route-based IPsec VPN tunnel to allow transparent communication between two networks that are located behind different FortiGates. The VPN is created on both FortiGates using the VPN Wizard’s Site to Site – FortiGate template. For this example, instead of using a pre-shared key for authentication, the FortiGates use a certificate.

In this example, one FortiGate is called HQ and the other Branch.
