Install Sophos SSL VPN Client (Windows) – SFOS

In this guide, we will show you how to download and install the SSL VPN client from the user portal of your Sophos Firewall.

Info: This guide was created for a Sophos Firewall with the SFOS operating system. For those who use a firewall with the UTM operating system, here is the SSL VPN guide for a UTM firewall guide. There are also instructions for setting up the VPN for macOS or iOS.

Install SSL VPN Client

1. log in to Sophos

Use your browser to go to the URL of the user portal of your Sophos. Then log in to the User Portal with your username and password.

Note: If a message appears in your browser that the connection is not trusted, it is because no SSL certificate has been issued for the firewall. Therefore, look for the option to access the page anyway (varies depending on the browser).

2. download Sophos SSL VPN Client

Change in the navigation to VPN. Then click on Download-Link and download the software and then the SSL VPN config.

3. install Sophos SSL VPN client

Run the setup and follow the steps of the wizard.
