IKEv2

Hello, I'm using IKEv2 VPN, is it possible to limit the client to login from specific ip address, for instance home static ip?

    Hi @erhan11

    In order to do this, you'd need to disable the default IPSec policy,
    See the "Disable or Enable the Built-in IPSec Policy" section in this article:

    https://www.watchguard.com/help/docs/help-center/en-US/Content/en-US/Fireware/bovpn/manual/global_vpn_settings_about_c.html

    You'd then need to make a policy from the specific IPs you want to be able to contact the firewall via IPSec, and make that policy to firebox.

    *Note that this policy also governs site to site VPNs, and IPSec (IKEv1) mobile VPN, so you will need to account for this in your policies.

  • In addition to limiting from IP (or instead of...), I suggest setting up MFA for all Mobile VPN access.

  • Thanks guys but im a complete newbie, I have no idea how I can do these settings, any video tutorial or something like that?

    Thanks again,
  • As James indicated:
    See: Disable or Enable the Built-in IPSec Policy, here

    Add an IPSec packet filter, From: desired public IP addrs To: Firebox

    MFA = multi-factor authentication
    This is a non-trivial setup process for a newbie. Something to consider down the road.

    I don't have a video for something that specific. Since people on mobile VPN are generally on the move, it's not uncommon to have them connect from any IP. Restricting it would be rare.

    If you need assistance setting this up, I'd suggest opening a support case, so that one of the support reps can assist you.
