Defining a network object that contains IP addresses assigned to mobile peers
The network assigned to clients must not already be known to the firewall: it must neither be a network that is directly connected nor a network known through routing.
In the module Configuration > Objects > Network objects:
- Click on Add.
- Select Network.
- Assign an Object name to this object (Mobile_Users_Network in the example).
- Enter the Network IP address field in the form of a network/mask.
This network must contain at least as many IP addresses as the number of users likely to connect via an IPsec VPN tunnel.
192.168.9.0/24 or 192.168.9.0/255.255.255.0 : 254 addresses so 254 Phase 2.
192.168.9.0/23 or 192.168.9.0/255.255.254.0 : 510 addresses so 510 Phase 2.
- Click on Create.
