VPN setup

I have been tasked with setting up a VPN connection from every BB10 handset to the BES10 server.


We have a Zyxel USG300 firewall in place and already have multiple iPhones and Android handsets connected. I used the following guide to configure the USG300 and setup the iPhones:




Aparently I can choose between the following VPN profiles on the BB10:


Check Point Software Technologies VPN-1 (PSK,PKI)
Cisco VPN GatewayType 3000 Series (XAUTH-PSK)
Cisco IOS with Easy VPN Server (XAUTH-PSK,XAUTH-PKI)
Juniper VPN Series (PSK,PKI,XAUTH-PSK)
Juniper SA VPN Series (EAP-MSCHAPv2)
Microsoft IKEv2 VPN Server (PKI,EAP-TLS,EAP-MSCHAPv2)


Which one should I choose? Has anyone experiance in setting this up on the BES and pushing out to the handsets?

Re: VPN setup

BlackBerry devices already have a VPN like connection when using BES. you can use your own VPN too but if not listed then not sure on what to choose for you.

Re: VPN setup

[ Edited ]

I have been trying to use


The Juniper VPN Series (PSK,PKI,XAUTH-PSK) profile


with PSK as the Zyxel USG300 supports PSK.


I also tried


The Generic IKEv2 VPN Server (PSK,PKI,EAP-TLS,EAP-MSCHAPv2) profile


with EAP-MSCHAPv2 as the Zyxel USG300 supports EAP-MSCHAPv2. See:




Unfortunatelly I did not have success with either profiles.


Does anyone have experiance on using any of those preconfigured profiles??
