IKE V2 with iOS & Windows 7 Clients

  • Hi,

    im trying to set up IKE V2 Vpn, which is running fine on either Windows 7 built in client "or" iOS 9 Devices. I wasn`t able to find any configuration that works on both operating systems at the same time.

    Log output if Windows 7 connecting while iOS works:

    Is it possible to make a configuration where both devices are able to connect?

    Search around a bit more and you'll find that you have to either:

    1. Use a VPN profile to make iOS and OS X use parameters that Windows will use
    2. Make a registry change on Windows to make it accept the parameters that iOS/OS X will use

    Option 1 is the easiest path. If you purchased a device from us you can set your VPN such that Windows will connect and then click VPN > IPsec Profile to download an iOS/OS X VPN profile that will configure them automatically. Otherwise you'll have to roll your own profile using Apple's tools.
