Import Connections

The Sophos Connect client can connect to XG Firewall using SSL or IPsec VPN connections. You can import connections into the Sophos Connect client.

Introduction

In version 2.0 of the Sophos Connect client, you can import both SSL and IPsec VPN connections. If you're using an earlier version of the Sophos Connect client, you can only import IPsec connections.

You can do as follows:

  • Import an IPsec connection using a file given to you by your firewall administrator.
  • Import an SSL connection using a file given to you by your firewall administrator.
  • Import an SSL connection by downloading a file from the user portal.
