Setup GMS to collect data from Firewall through VPN

  • Is that possible to setup the GMS to collect the data from Sonicwall firewall through VPN?

    The VPN is built up by Sonicwall firewall as well.

  • Hi Ivan
    Yes, the GMS Server creates a VPN between the GMS local Firewall and the Firewalls outside automatically.

    Between GMS Server and GMS local Firewall, there is no VPN.

    Kind regards

  • Dear Nik,

    Is there any setting need concern on using VPN between GMS and Firewall in branch office?

  • Hi Ivan
    In GMS the Management Mode is "Using Management Tunnel".
    In the Branch Firewall the Management Mode is "IPSEC Management Tunnel"

    This woks fine until 5.8.1.13.
    In 5.9.0 and above GMS does create the VPN tunnel, but does not transport the syslogs and SNMP messages.

    Kind regards
    Nik
