How to configure ipsec tunnel between SD-WAN and third-party devices

To configure ipsec tunnel for intranet or LAN service:

  1. In the Configuration Editor, navigate to Connections > View Site > [Site Name] > IPsec Tunnels. Choose a Service Type (LAN or Intranet).

  2. Enter a Name for the service type. For Intranet service type, the configured Intranet Server will determine which Local IP addresses are available.

  3. Select the available Local IP address and enter the Peer IP address for the virtual path to peer with.

    Note

    If the Service Type is Intranet, the IP address is pre-determined by the chosen Intranet Service.
