46.1. Import

Prepare the Intra2net system for a connection with VPN clients first as described in Section 44.2, „Preparing the configuration on the Intra2net system“. After that the complete configuration for the client can be generated by the Intra2net system as described in Section 44.3, „Automatic configuration for clients on the Intra2net system“.

Transfer the newly created configuration file to the client PC, e.g. as an email attachment. Provide the user with the password that protects the private key in another way, e.g. personally on site. For security reasons, do not send this password by email.

Start the VPN Access Manager and go to the menu File > Import. Select the file created by the Intra2net system with the extension .vpn and import it.
