We have a SonicWALL Pro 2040 firewall at our office, and we want a user to be able to use his iPad to connect to it over a VPN. Is this possible? Has anyone actually done it with this exact model of firewall? Which version of the SonicOS is required?


Here is the Sonicwall KB for setting up a L2TP VPN. I might suggest creating a new VPN zone if you're already using the Global VPN client.

Also if you have issues connecting with your Ipsec (Phase 2). Change the Encryption from 3DES to DES. I've had to do that on both Android devices as well as a few iPads and iPhones.

Here is the link for setting up the iPad
