Watchguard VPN Client Setup on Firebox X Edge firewall.

I am using a WatchGuard Firebox X Edge firewall and would like to allow users to connect, download the VPN client software, and connect to the Firebox through RADIUS authentication.  I have RADIUS set up and working, but I'm not able to connect and download the VPN software from my Firebox.  The guides I have viewed show that if you connect to port 4100 of the Firebox, you should be able to download the VPN client from there.  However, my connection just times out.  What do I need to do to be able to download and connect via VPN?  Also, I have port 443 forwarded to an Exchange server, does this mean I can't use the Mobile VPN?

Thank you

are you talking about mobile vpn with IPSEC or SSL?

Port 4100 is used by watchguard system manager and nothing else, the only thing that can be downloaded through WSM/web interface is the config file for the vpn

Mobile VPN with IPSEC.  How do I download the configuration file for the VPN?  And where would I download the client, then?

as i said, you should download the client from :

wwww.watchguard.com , log in in the top right corner --> software downloads--> choose product family --> download IPSEC Client

the config file can be downloaded on the page where you configure the vpn, there should be a button 'generate config file' or something (i'm not sure on the edge, but this is on the XTM WEBUI) so i think it would be the same on edge

I don't have that option on the Edge.  Is there another way to get the config?

Thank you
