Tunnel Management

On the RED Management > Tunnel Management page you can configure your Sophos UTM on AWS to act as a RED appliance to be able to establish a RED tunnel to another Sophos UTM on AWS. The remote host Sophos UTM on AWS will then serve as RED hub for your Sophos UTM on AWS.

The [Client] tag in front of the page name indicates that this page only needs configuration if Sophos UTM on AWS should act as RED client.

To connect your Sophos UTM on AWS to the host Sophos UTM on AWS you need a provisioning file. This file needs to be generated on the host Sophos UTM on AWS (see Client Management).

To connect your Sophos UTM on AWS to the host Sophos UTM on AWS, proceed as follows:

  1. On the host Sophos UTM on AWS, add your local Sophos UTM on AWS to the Client Management list.
  2. On the host Sophos UTM on AWS, download the provisioning file for your Sophos UTM on AWS.
  3. On your local Sophos UTM on AWS, click Add Tunnel.

    The Add Tunnel dialog box opens.

  4. Make the following settings:

    Tunnel name: Enter a descriptive name for this tunnel.

    UTM host: Select the remote Sophos UTM on AWS host.

    Type: Select Firewall RED client. Only use the legacy option if the host Sophos UTM on AWS has a version earlier than 9.7.

    Prov. file: Click the Folder icon, select the provisioning file you want to upload, and click Start Upload.

    Comment (optional): Add a description or other information.

  5. Click Save.

    The RED tunnel will be established and displayed on the Tunnel Management list.
