This guide helps you configure step by step remote access to the UTM using the Sophos Connect client. Sophos Connect is IPsec VPN software that runs on Microsoft Windows 10 and macOS 10.12 and later. It establishes highly secure, encrypted VPN tunnels for off-site employees.

To configure and establish IPsec remote access connections over the Sophos Connect client, an administrator must do as follows:

  1. Create a user or user group to use remote access.
  2. Configure the IPsecL2TPPPTPSSL remote access connection in Sophos UTM.
  3. Provide users with the Sophos Connect client and configuration files.

    There are two methods:

    • Turn on the Sophos UTM User Portal for the remote access users to download the installer and configuration files.

    • Send the installer and configuration file to users.

Users must do as follows:

  1. Install the Sophos Connect client on their endpoint devices.

  2. Import the configuration files into the client and establish the connection.
