Sophos UTM SSL VPN client to site – step by step Configuration

1. Go to Remote Access -> SSL

2. New Remote Access Profile

3. Profile Config:

Automatic firewall rules: Select this option to automatically add firewall rules that allow traffic for this profile. The rules are added as soon as the profile is enabled, and they are removed when the profile is disabled. If you do not select this option, you need to specify appropriate firewall rules manually.
