Can Meraki security appliances interoperate with openvpn?

user67327 asked:

I know this is a long shot, but has Meraki said anything about interoperating with SSL vpns such as openvpn?

My answer:

Just going to quote from the docs here:

Currently, MX series support for third-party VPN interoperability requires the following:

  • Preshared keys (no certificates)
  • LAN static routes (no routing protocol for the VPN interface)
  • Phase 1 (IKE Policy): 3DES, SHA1, DH group 2, lifetime 8 hours
  • Phase 2 (IPsec Rule): Any of 3DES, DES, or AES; either MD5 or SHA1; PFS disabled; lifetime 8 hours

So, no, no OpenVPN support. If you need OpenVPN support, I suggest you contact your Meraki rep.
