Authentication and Connection Options

Once you have used Quick Configuration to set up the 3002 or have modified its configuration, you’ll want to verify that an IPsec tunnel can be brought up to the configured VPN gateway. The following sections will discuss three possible options you can use to perform authentication: Unit Authentication, Interactive Unit Authentication, and Individual User Authentication. If the 3002 will be connecting to a VPN 3000 concentrator, you also must enable the correct policy on the concentrator. Under the “Building the IPsec Tunnel” subheading, I also will discuss three possible options of performing authentication for use of the IPsec tunnel when Interactive Unit or Individual User Authentication is enabled.
