How do I connect to WatchGuard mobile VPN?
By default, a mobile VPN connection opens when WatchGuard Mobility Server is first installed on the mobile device.
The user must go into Settings VPN Connections to make any changes to VPN settings or to add a new VPN connection.
If the user starts the WatchGuard Mobility Server service from the command line in macOS, Windows, or Linux, the service automatically creates a mobile VPN connection and connects to it without any action on the part of the user. Note: The WatchGuard Mobility Server service creates a mobile VPN connection on each login. Step 1. Make sure that the watchguardmobileserver service is running on the mobile device and is using the default port 4443. Step 3. Select the VPN tab in the WatchGuard Mobility Server configuration editor. Step 4. To connect to a WatchGuard mobile VPN, click Add and enter the following information: Name: Specify a name for the connection. Port number: Enter the number of the WatchGuard Mobile Server default port number (4443). IP address: Specify the IP address of the WatchGuard Mobile Server. Click Add and finish. If you click Change Logins after you have created the connection, an alert message appears informing you that the credentials for this connection have already been saved. Step 5. To remove a WatchGuard mobile VPN connection, click Edit, click Remove and enter the name and IP address of the connection you want to remove. Step 6. Repeat Steps 1-5 to additional connections to your WatchGuard Mobility Server. Mobile VPN connection does not work.

Does WatchGuard have VPN?
I've never had any issues with the built-in web filtering on Windows, but I'm wondering if it has a VPN capability, and if so, is it available to other operating systems?
If it does have VPN capability, then I'd like to know how it works. I know the VPN capability is built into Windows 7 (or Vista), but I don't know how it works. Are you able to configure it, or does it automatically connect to a VPN on launch? What happens if the VPN connection isn't available?
I know the VPN capability is built into Windows 7 (or Vista), but I don't know how it works. Thanks. I have no idea what Windows 7 has. However, if your PC is connected to a router, it might have a VPN option. I believe that it is only available on Windows 7 and Vista. It's called the "Windows Internet Connection Sharing" feature. I know the VPN capability is built into Windows 7 (or Vista), but I don't know how it works.
It is. Go to the Windows control panel and click "Internet Connection Sharing". It has VPN options.
