Configuring a Manual Key VPN

Manually configuring SA is complicated as all the information will be configured by yourself and some advanced features of IPSec are not supported (e.g. timed refreshing), but the advantage is that manually configured SA can independently fulfill IPSec features without relying on IKE. This method applies to a situation with a small number of devices or an environment of static IP addresses.

To create a manual key VPN, take the following steps:

  1. Select Network > VPN > IPSec VPN.
  2. In the Manual Key VPN Configuration section, click New.
  3. Click OK to save the settings.
