L2TP

The Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) enables you to provide connections to your network through private tunnels over the internet. The firewall supports L2TP as defined in RFC 3931.

Note

To activate L2TP connections, you must first turn on L2TP. Go to Remote access VPN > L2TP. Click L2TP global settings, then click Enable L2TP, and specify the settings.

  • To see the L2TP logs, click Logs.
  • To turn a connection on, click the Active status indicator.
  • To connect, click the Connection status indicator.
