Using NCP for Dynamic IPSEC VPN connection

Using NCP for Dynamic IPSEC VPN connection

Step 1: Create a Dynamic IPSEC Server.
Visuals below can be used as guidelines for your initial attempt. Make sure that the IPSEC Server is Enabled.

Step 2:
Create an IPSEC Key.

At the bottom of the page, you will see the IPSEC Keys section. You will need to add and Create your identifier and key.

Step 3: Client configuration

You will need to install the client on your device. Then select configuration at the top and select Profiles.

Choose to Add/Import and import the config attached below. 
Once imported, double click the profile (or select Edit at the options below) and you should see a Profile Settings page. 

From your options on the left, first, choose IPsec General Settings and input the Public IP of the site you are attempting to connect to. 

Next, select Identities and change the needed fields to match your IPsec Key that you have created earlier on the dashboard.

You will need to change IPsec Address assignment to match the LAN IP address available on the SimpleWAN unit.

The IP Address may be anything as long as it matches the Remote Network's IP Scheme and Subnet, and that it does not conflict with any other device on the network.

Finally, Go to Split Tunneling and make sure it matches the Remote Network IP and Subnet.

Once you have accomplished all tasks above, you can select OK across the board, and try to connect.

OH NO! I am getting an Error!
If you are getting an error similar to this:
Check your IPSEC Keys and make sure they match what you type into the Client.
If the issue persists, you may have another VPN type that is conflicting with this one.
