Sophos Firewall connecting to NordVPN
I'm user of Untangle at my home/homelab. I'm trying Sophos Firewall to see if i switch from Untangle to Sophos Firewall. I'm from Brazil but i live in Canada, because of my country of origin i have to use an VPN like NordVPN to "tell" to brazilian service providers (like banks, governement sites and etc.) that "i'm in brazil".
So not having a way to connect to a VPN service like Nord VPN and route my trafic over NordVPN can be a deal breaker.
I researched and i'm not sure if its possible or not possible to do this.
Can you tell me if i can connect to an VPN service like NordVPN and route my trafic over there in Sophos Firewal?
I think i have the newest version, i started to test it yesterday.
Thank you for contacting the Sophos Community.
Unfortunately, this would be a Feature Request as it’sn’t possible to create an IPsec between Sophos Firewall and NordVPN at the moment.…

Currently, it’s only possible to use NordLayer to achieve this, which is another service that NordVPN provides.
Could you tell us more about NordLayer to do this? It's not clear on their website.
As with most business software the descriptions are always very vague other than "Product X solves problem Y"
I found this tutorial. Maybe this is what Fabio wanted to do. I was worried he was trolling us after he kept asking how to install NordVPN as a client on SophosXG when we kept telling him he can't.
Installing Nordlayer on sophos XG
The XG creates a site-to-site VPN tunnel to NordLayer and from there you tell Nordlayer from which country you want the connection to appear coming from when your PC sends traffic via the Tunnel.
PC >> XG >> site2site >> NordLayer >> Pick a country Server (Mexico)>> Local Server in Mexico
