You need some miscellaneous information to get started; file a support ticket if you don't already have the following:
  • Sonicwall WAN IP address
  • PreShared Key (PSK)
  • Sonicwall username and password (if required)
  • GlobalVPN client software (attached, bottom of page)

This FAQ assumes the globalVPN client is already installed.


  1. Open GlobalVPN and click new connection
  2. Click next and choose Remote Access.
  3. Enter the WAN IP address of your sonicwall and a friendly name you can remember.
  4. Click Finish
  5. Double click your connection name.
  6. Enter the PSK
  7. Enter your username and password
  8. If all went well you should now be connected.
