I'm pleased to announce the release of Sophos Connect 2.1! This is primarily a security and maintenance update, but contains one significant enhancement for IPsec VPN provisioning. With this release, provisioning files will also allow import of IPsec policies.
Remote Access IPsec Policy provisioningWhen provisioning users, the client and provisioning file may be pushed to users via standard automation procedures. When the client first attempts to conenct, the user will be prompted to authenticate, and the client will first connect to the firewall over HTTPS, and download the available VPN policy for SSL and IPsec connections for that user. If the user attempting to connect does not exist yet on the firewall, but are part of an AD user group with permission to connect over IPsec or SSL VPN, then the user will automatically be created at this point, and granted VPN permissions. This enhancement removes the need to pre-create AD users on XG, just to allow them to connect remotely via IPsec.
So we have been testing the Sophos Connect 2.1 client with provisioning file and here are our findiings.
1. Sophos Connect 2.1 will install on Windows 7 but the provisioning file does not work, says "failed to load connection"
2. We have IPSEC and SSL setup and users get both even if they don't have rights to use both
3. Took a long time for the IPSEC profile to not be installed even after we removed it and reset it on the XG
Is there a way in the provisioning file to only install the SSL VPN?
I have Sophos Connect 2.1.20 and it won't install on a brand new PC running Windows 10 20H2. It keeps telling me I need IE 11 or greater.

Currently if DDNS is configured on XG for WAN link used in IPsec Remote access, .scx/.tgb file uses "FQDN" value from DDNS config instead of IP address for "gateway".
