Review External Access

Optional: This part can be skipped if you set the discovery method in the Setup Wizard and you want to give your clients IPs in the subnet 172.16.1.0/24

If you need to change the external IP address discovery method or change the network subnet pools for connections, then you can alter these.

Enable Remote Access to your VPN 

Review Peer Definitions

Optional: There is a default Peer Definition on the system that should work for all users, so this part may be skipped if you just want to get a client connected quickly.

If you want to publish more subnets to your clients or alter DNS settings, or even give configurations to different sets of users, then you will need to look at the Peer Definitions.
