Hi
I have a watchguard x750 vpn router. I have everything working ok, but i was trying to set a schedule for the groups of vpn users i created to allow logons only during set times. I see a option in the policy manager to make schedules but i have no idea how to apply it to the vpn policy? Thanks.

You can set an operating schedule for the policy; after you have created schedule [which I think you have]; edit the policy on which you wish to apply it to [in this case it would be the policy which allows remote users access to WG resources].
Go to advanced tab; select the scedule you created from the Schedule drop-down list. Click OK; save to FB.

Please advice if you need more details.

Thank you.

well in the policy manager there is not listings for any of the ipsec vpn settings. It is all done through the main menu it seems. I understand what you are saying how to make a schedule and apply it to a specific policy like allow ftp or something, but since none of the vpn settings are in this big list there is no where to set the hours that i can see just for the vpn and that is what i am trying to set.

Assuming you are using IPSec or MUVPN then in Policy Manager you would have two tabs:
Firewall and Mobile User with IPSec
click Mobile User with IPSec; edit the policy there and apply schedule.

If you are using some other VPN like SSL then there is automatic policy which gets created "Allow SSL VPN-User" or if PPTP then there would be a custom service.

Please advice if I missed anything.

Thank you.
