Can the FortiGate 40F support two IPSec Tunnels?


Under "VPN > IPsec Tunnels" I created two types using the VPN Wizard which I intended one for Windows Laptops and the other for iPad Devices.


1. Dialup - FortiClient  - (incoming: wan, IP range:, Split tunnel: disabled)

2. Dialup - IOS (Native) - (incoming: wan, IP range:, Split tunnel: enabled)



However I'm not sure if you are allowed to do this or not?

Is this good practice? Or will it cause issues?


hm I have 40Fs here that even use redundant SDWAN VPN with up to 4 tunnels without any problems.

you just have to make sure that the correct device connects to the correct tunnel. this can either be achieved by using different wan interfaces or use specific peerids.

And - if thise are dialup - keep the character space limitations in mind.
