Sonicwall has the functionality to allow remote users to connect to the network behind the SonicWALLl using Global VPN Client software using IPSEC VPN protocol. This article focuses on the configuration of WAN Group VPN settings on the Sonicwall appliance so that a remote computer can access the corporate network behind the SonicWALL using the Public IP



Deployment steps:

To configure the sonicwall to accept GVC connections three steps have to be performed. These steps can be achieved either by following the wizard or manually.

Step 1: Configure WAN GroupVPN on the SonicWALL appliance (In this section we will select the Encryption, authentication options and GVC client settings).
Step 2: Configure DHCP over VPN on the SonicWALL appliance (In this section we will configure sonicwall to assign virtual IP addresses to GVC software).
Step 3: Configure User accounts on the SonicWALL appliance (In this section we will create user accounts for GVC users and also Add subnets or IP addresses that the GVC users need to access.)
Step 4: How to Test


Step 1: Configure WAN group VPN on the SonicWALL appliance.

 To configure the WAN GroupVPN, follow these steps:

1. Login to the SonicWALL Management Interface; go to VPN > Settings page.
2. Make sure that the Enable VPN and WAN GroupVPN check boxes are enabled:


3. Click the configure icon for the WAN GroupVPN entry. The VPN Policy window is displayed
4. In the General tab, IKE using Preshared Secret is the default setting for Authentication Method. Enter a shared secret in the Shared Secret Field.


5.Click the Proposals tab, use the default settings or choose the desired Encryption and Authentication options.


IKE ( Phase 1 ) Proposal

DH Group : Group 2
Encryption : 3DES
Authentication : SHA1
Life Time (seconds) : 28800

Ipsec (Phase 2) Proposal

Phase 2
Protocol : ESP
Encryption : 3DES
Authentication : SHA1

Life Time (seconds) : 28800

Select Enable Perfect Forward Secrecy if you want an additional Diffie-Hellman key exchange as an added layer of security. Select Group 2 from the DH Group menu.

Note: The Windows 2000 L2TP client and Windows XP L2TP client can only work with DH Group 2. They are incompatible with DH Groups 1 and 5.



6.Click the Advanced tab.

Enable Windows Networking (NetBIOS) broadcast - 
Allows access to remote network 
resources by browsing 
the Windows® Network Neighborhood.

Require Authentication of VPN Clients via XAUTH - 
So that all the users connecting to he corporate network 
are authenticated. Unauthenticated trafficwill not be allowed 
on to connect.The Trusted users group is selected by default.

Management via this SA: - Optionally, if you want the Remote 
users to manage the  SonicWALL security appliance, 
select the management method, either HTTP or HTTPS.

7.Click the Client tab, select the following settings.

Cache XAUTH User Name and Password on Client : Single session
Virtual Adapter Settings
DHCP Lease
Allow Connections to
Split Tunnels
Set Default Route as this Gateway
                          : Disable
Use Default Key for Simple Client Provisioning      : Disable


8. Click OK

Step 2: Configure DHCP over VPN.

To configure DHCP over VPN for the Central Gateway, use the following steps:
 1. Select VPN > DHCP over VPN, select Central Gateway from the menu.

 2. Click Configure. The DHCP over VPN Configuration window is displayed

3. Select Use Internal DHCP Server if sonicwall is the DHCP server.Check the For Global VPN Client checkbox to use the DHCP Server for Global VPN Clients.



If you want to send DHCP requests to specific servers, 
select Send DHCP requests to the server addresses listed below.

Click Add.
Type the IP addresses of DHCP servers in the IP Address field, 
Click OK.

The SonicWALL security appliance now directs DHCP requests to the 
specified servers.


Step 3 .Configure User Accounts 

To configure User accounts , use the following steps:
1. Select Users > Local Users

2. Click on Add User
3. Under the settings tab give the desired name and password

4. Go to the Groups Tab , user should be member of trusted users.


5. Go to VPN access tab , select the subnet that the user need to access.

    Example: If you want GVC users to access  VPN networks, add them to Access List section.


6. Click OK


How to Test:  Using GVC software installed on the remote computer to connect to the corporate network.


1. Install the latest GVC software on the remote user’s computer
2. Launch the Global VPN Client software
3. Click on File > New Connection and Click Next



4. Select Remote access and click next



5. Under IP address enter the WAN / X1 IP of the SonicWALL , click next and click Finish



6. Right click on the new connection that is created and click Enable



7. Enter the preshared secret for the connection


8. Enter the username and password for the connection



9. After entering the username and password , the adapter will try to acquire an IP address and then change to Connected status.



 10. To check the IP address for the Sonicwall virtual adapter, go to the command prompt on the computer and type the command IPCONFIG
