I need to set up a VPN with a Watchguard Firebox X500 and a Firebox Edge. Do I need to buy the Branch VPN Manager or can you do it through Policy Manager? I've read the manual and the index doesn't even correspond to the subject matter.
If I do it through policy manager, what ports should I set up.

You can use policy manager and configure BOVPN on x500; also using the web configuration page on xEdge you would configure VPN; please make sure to configure identical settings on both ends.

You would not need to open any ports for VPN; but only on x500 for the remote subnet to allow/deny traffic. Normally we open ANY service unless specified.

Please let me know the version of the software running on both the devices and if you need exact steps.

Thank you.

Thank you for your response.
I would like the steps if possible.
We are running WFS 7.5 on the X500 and 7.5 Build19 on the X15.
Would we have to set up a routing table as well?

Thank you for your responses but all of the solutions required a purchase of software from Watchguard. Because the X500 is nearing end of life in October, Watchguard won't sell me MUVPN licenses. Although I have current live security.

Fortunately I had a spare X10 that I was saving for home and have set that up in paralell on an optional network and using that as a VPN gateway.

Found alternative solution as I didn't have appropriate licensing.
