Step 4

Under Network > Network Profiles > IPSec Crypto , click Add to create a new Profile, define the IPSec Crypto profile to specify protocols and algorithms for identification, authentication, and encryption in VPN tunnels based on IPSec SA negotiation (IKEv1 Phase-2).

Step 6

Under Network > Virtual Routers, click on your Virtual router profile, then click Static Routes, add a new route for the network that is behind the other VPN endpoint. Be sure to use the proper Tunnel Interface. Click OK when done.
