Umbrella uses the IPsec protocol for tunneling traffic. IPsec has multiple components, and one of the key components is IKE—which manages negotiation with the peers, authenticating, certificate exchanges, and also maintains the session by using the keep alive mechanism. We (i.e. Umbrella) only support IKEv2, which is faster and more secure than IKEv1. Meraki supports IKEv1 and IKEv2 for the IPsec tunnels.
Steps to Enable IKEv2
To successfully establish an IPsec tunnel between Meraki and Umbrella, please refer to the following Meraki KB article:
If you need assistance with configuring the tunnel in the Meraki dashboard, then please contact Meraki support.
