Configure dial-up (dynamic) VPN

Dial-up, or dynamic, VPNs are used to facilitate zero touch provisioning of new spokes to establish VPN connections to the hub FortiGate.

The exchange-interface-ip option is enabled to allow the exchange of IPsec interface IP addresses. This allows a point to multipoint connection to the hub FortiGate.

The add-route option is disabled to allow multiple dial-up tunnels to be established to the same host that is advertising the same network. This dynamic network discovery is facilitated by the BGP configuration; see Configure BGP for details.

Wildcard security associations are defined for the phase2 interface because routing is used to determine if traffic is subject to encryption and transmission through the IPsec VPN tunnel. The phase1 interface name must be 11 characters or less.

A dynamic VPN configuration must be defined for each interface that connects to the internet.

To configure the IPsec phase1 interfaces:
config vpn ipsec phase1-interface
    edit "vpn-isp-a"
        set type dynamic
        set interface "port2"
        set peertype any
        set exchange-interface-ip enable
        set proposal aes256-sha256
        set add-route disable
        set dhgrp 5
        set net-device enable
        set psksecret ********
    next
    edit "vpn-isp-b"
        set type dynamic
        set interface "port3"
        set peertype any
        set exchange-interface-ip enable
        set proposal aes256-sha256
        set add-route disable
        set dhgrp 5
        set net-device enable
        set psksecret ********
    next
end
To configure the IPsec phase2 interfaces:
config vpn ipsec phase2-interface
    edit "vpn-isp-a_p2"
        set phase1name "vpn-isp-a"
        set proposal aes256-sha256
        set pfs disable
        set replay disable
    next
    edit "vpn-isp-b_p2"
        set phase1name "vpn-isp-b"
        set proposal aes256-sha256
        set pfs disable
        set replay disable
    next
end
