Installing IPsec VPN configuration

After the IPsec template is assigned to devices, it still must be installed to push the configuration to the devices.

If a template is assigned but not installed, a Caution icon displays before the template name in the IPsec Template column. You must install the IPsec VPN configuration and firewall policies to the devices for the IPsec template to push through all the settings.

To install IPsec VPN configuration and firewall policies to a device:
  1. Go to Policy & Objects > Policy Packages > Firewall Policy.
  2. Click Create New from the toolbar. The Create New Firewall Policy pane appears.
  3. Create two firewall policies for traffic between the normalized interface and HQ site.

  4. Click Install > Install Wizard from the toolbar. The Install Wizard dialog appears.
  5. Continue with the policy installation on the appropriate devices.
  6. Click Finish. The firewall policies are installed and the IPsec VPN configurations are pushed to the devices.
