Administration Guide

Creating managed gateways

The settings available when creating a managed gateway depend on the VPN topology type, and how the gateway is configured.

Managed gateways are managed by FortiManager in the current ADOM. Devices in a different ADOM can be treated as external gateways. VPN configuration must be handled manually by the administrator in that ADOM. See Creating external gateways.

To create a managed gateway:
  1. Go to VPN Manager > IPsec VPN.
  2. Select a community from the tree menu, or double-click on a community in the list.
  3. On the community information content pane, in the toolbar, select Create New > Managed Gateway.

    The VPN Gateway Setup Wizard opens.

  4. Proceed through the five pages of the wizard, filling in the following values as required, then click OK to create the managed gateway.

    Protected Subnet

    Select a protected subnet from the dropdown list.

    Role

    Select the role of this gateway: Hub or Spoke.

    This option is only available for star and dial up VPN topologies.

    Device

    Select a device from the dropdown list.

    Default VPN Interface

    Select the interface to use for this gateway from the dropdown list.

    Hub-to-Hub Interface

    Select the interface to use for hub to hub communication. This is required if there are multiple hubs.

    This option is only available for star and dial up topologies with the role set to Hub.

    Local Gateway

    Enter the local gateway IP address.

    Local ID

    Enter a local ID.

    Routing

    Select the routing method: Manual (via Device Manager, or Automatic.

    Summary Network(s)

    Select the network from the dropdown list and select the priority. Click the add icon to add more entries.

    This option is only available for star and dial up topologies with the role set to Hub.

    Peer Type

    Select one of the following:

    • Accept any peer ID
    • Accept this peer ID: Enter the peer ID in the text field
    • Accept a dialup group: Select a group from the dropdown list
    • Accept peer: Select a peer from the dropdown list
    • Accept peer group: Select a peer group from the dropdown list

    A Local ID is an alphanumeric value assigned in the Phase 1 configuration. The local ID of a peer is called a Peer ID. The Local ID or peer ID can be used to uniquely identify one end of a VPN tunnel, enabling a more secure connection. If you have multiple VPN tunnels negotiating, this ensures the proper remote and local ends connect.

    When you configure the ID on your end, it is your local ID. When the remote end connects to you, they see it as your peer ID. If you are debugging a VPN connection, the local ID is part of the VPN negotiations. You can use it to help troubleshoot connection problems.

    The default configuration is to accept all local IDs (peer IDs). If your local ID is set, the remote end of the tunnel must be configured to accept your ID.

    This option is only available for dial up topologies.

    XAUTH Type

    Select the XAUTH type: Disable, PAP Server, CHAP Server, or AUTO Server.

    This option is only available for dial up topologies.
