I am trying to connect a yealink to our kerio control via the yealinks built in vpn feature which I believe is openvpn. Is it possible for control to accept such connections?

It may work using a pre-shared key. This article http://kb.kerio.com/1281 provides instructions for connecting from mobile devices. There are only a few parameters which can be specified:
- server address
- protocol (L2TP/IPsec)
- user/password
- passphrase
I've successfully connected a Grandstream GXV3275 but have not tested VPN from a Yealink phone.

Hi Mr Brian,

I would like to know how do you accomplish that using Kerio VPN and Grandstream Phone.

I have a GrandStream GXP2160 and i can't figure out how to use the OpenVPN on that phone to connect it to Kerio VPN, Please see attached Picture.

Best regards,

-Roy

I don't have a GXP2160 for testing, but it seems the OS and VPN implementation is entirely different. The GXV series uses the Android OS and the options for IPsec VPN are nearly identical to those in KB 1281. Looking at the options from your screenshot it seems that it uses IKEv2, which is not something we support yet in Kerio Control, however it is an important feature that has a high priority.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your fast reply!

One more question, i would like to use Kerio control to connect to my external Centos server using Ipsec from kerio connect instead of making an Vpn Client on that PC.

For short, want to make a Vpn tunnel from Kerio to my External Centos server, my Centos have already IpSec server.

So kerio need to connect to my Centos as a client or tunnel, but i can't figure out because my credential is like this :

SERVER IP : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
IPsec PSK: blahblahblah
Username: vpnuser
Password: mypassword


Best regards,

-Roy

Hi Roy,

Have you updated your Kerio Control to version 9.2.1? Additional configuration parameters have been added for IPsec tunnels. http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-control/vpn/configuring-ip sec-vpn-tunnel-kerio-control-and-another-device-1390.html

From the 9.2.1 Release Notes:
IPsec VPN tunnel configuration update

Kerio Control 9.2 adds a detailed configuration for IKE and ESP ciphers used in IPsec VPN tunnels. With this detailed configuration you can easily create IPsec VPN tunnels with third-party firewalls.

Read more in our Knowledge Base: Configuring IPsec VPN tunnel

Hi Brian!

I have already upgraded My Kerio and this option is available and great!

But still i don't know how to put my credential to that tunnel on kerio Tunnel properties as the password area is not available.

to be able to connect to my Centos external Ipsec server this credential is needed:

SERVER IP : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
IPsec PSK: blahblahblah
Username: vpnuser
Password: mypassword


Regards,

-Roy
