If the Internet traffic of a mobile worker should be checked by the Unified Firewall all traffic has to be routed via the Firewall.
This article describes how the Internet traffic of a mobile worker who establishes a dial-in VPN connection to the company can be scanned by the HTTP Proxy of the Unified Firewall.
- LANCOM R&S® Unified Firewall with LCOS FX as of version 10.4
- LANCOM Advanced VPN Client as of version 4.1
- A configured and functional Internet connection on the Unified Firewall
- Configured and functional HTTP Proxy on the Unified Firewall.
- Web browser for configuring the Unified Firewall.
The following browsers are supported:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- A mobile worker establishes an IKEv2 connection with the Advanced VPN Client to the company.
- For the Internet traffic of the mobile worker to be encrypted it is routed via the VPN connection to the Unified Firewall.
- The Internet traffic of the mobile worker is to be scanned by the HTTP Proxy of the Unified Firewall.
1) Configuring the Advanced VPN Client connection:
1.1) Open the configuration of the Unified Firewall in a browser and set up an IKEv2 connection for the Advanced VPN Client.
1.2) In step 1.5 for Local Networks enter the address 0.0.0.0/0 instead of the local network. This address represents any network and thus makes it possible for the entire data traffic to be routed via the VPN connection.
In the Advanced VPN Client profile no network must be present in the tab "Split Tunneling"! Otherwise only the traffic destined for this network is routed via the VPN connection.
1.3) The configuration of the Advanced VPN Client connection is now complete.
2) Manual configuration steps:
2.1) Go to the menu VPN → IPSec → Virtual IP Pools and edit the IP Pool used for the VPN connection (in this example Default Virtual-IP pool).
2.2) For Preferred DNS Server enter the IP address of a DNS server and click Save. This server is assigned to the VPN client during the dial-in process and enables resolving DNS names via the VPN connection.
2.3) On the desktop click on the VPN host created in step 1 (in this example AVC-IKEv2), select the Connection Tool and click on the Internet object to set up firewall rules.
2.4) Add the protocols HTTP, HTTPS and DNS.
2.5) For the protocols HTTP and HTTPS under Options click on NAT consecutively.
2.6) For HTTP and HTTPS activate the option Enable proxy for this service and click OK.
2.7) Click Save for the firewall rules to be created.
2.8) Click Activate in order for the changes to be implemented by the Unified Firewall.
3) Importing the HTTP proxy certificate into the computer with the Advanced VPN Client:
Export the HTTP proxy certificate and import it into the computer with the Advanced VPN client. The procedure is explained in step 3 in this Knowledge Base article.
4) Configuring additional UTM functions (optional):
Additional UTM functions, which require the HTTP proxy can now be configured.
