l2tp vpn settings members

Hello, can some, please, explain me the sense of adding members button on the l2tp vpn settings on xg firewall? The l2tp (remote access) section, allows for the creation of multiple profiles each with its own PSK or digital certifcate. How do they go together? I'm using v18 mr4 and, If I set a PSK on an l2tp profile, the PSK in the 'IPSEC (Remote access)' is replaced by this.

  • Hi ,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community! 

    Adding the member from the VPN setting > L2TP > Add members will turn on L2TP VPN for that user. By default, it’s turned off. 

    Reference screenshot: 

    You can configure a new profile with the digital certificate authentication but not on the same interface. You could configure the alias interface and use it with the new profile on the second WAN connection. 

    The PSK configured for the IPsec(Remote Access) won’t be replaced by the L2TP. 

    Thanks,
