Disable SSL - IPSEC only

L4 Transporter


a quick one: is it possible to disable SSL VPN at GP? So users can only connect via IPSEC...

I know its possible to do it the other way but we like to have a IPSEC only portal/gateway.

Hello HitHead,

Portal runs on SSL, but you can configure gateway for IPsec. Please configure following settings on Gateway for IPsec.

I know, but the failover mechanism is still active (if IPSEC fails, GP is trying to connect via SSL).

Hi Hithead,

Than you can block SSL for Gateway IP address in Policy. That way failover will not take place in reality.

This will work only if portal is on another firewall.

Hi Hithead,

Let me know if this helps, there is no inbuilt way or command to disable SSL.

I didnt find any existing Feature Request to disable SSL, I would suggest to contact Sales Engineer to open new Feature Request.

Hi hshah,

Portal = Gateway in our installations. So not possible.

Will contact SE for a feature request. Thanks.

only way for now, just to create GP , GW config(empty portal config) and make clients connect with cisco client,ort etc.instead of GP client.

Hi HitHead,

In that case you can assign loopback IP to Portal and loopback should be part of untrust network.

Now you car restrict traffic on Gateway.

Let me know if thats a good work around.


Hardik Shah

sorry but how should that work?

(We have one public IP (gateway = portal) NATed to the Portal. At the Portal we configured the public DNS as gateway for the client config.)

Do you have any free public IP from the pool. That can be configured on Loopback.
