 Need assistance creating an IPsec (Firewall/VPN) connection and point it to one of the Web Security Service Datacenters.


Follow the links below to get the "Step by Step" configuration depending on the type of deployment that you desire to do:

  • Pre-shared Key/Standard

Configure the firewall device and the Web Security Service to use a preshared-key to authenticate the Peer-to-Peer connection (Several different firewalls are supported and indexed with their corresponding guide)

  • Cert-Based Firewall

The firewall performs a Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) request to the Symantec Partner (Entrust) to obtain the certificate used to authenticate itself to the service.
