At a glance: IKEv2 support in VPN Tracker

  • Newly-designed IKEv2 engine
  • Ready-made profiles for popular IKEv2 gateways
  • Manual control over specific encryption settings for power users
  • Support for automatic encryption negotiation
  • Auto-Config: Automatically receive remote networks and topology settings

We've got your back where Apple doesn't!

Apple’s built in IKEv2 VPN will drop support for some IKEv2 connections in future (i.e. connections using 3DES, DH-Groups lower than 14 and SHA1 96/160.) Don’t panic yet — VPN Tracker's own IKEv2 implementation always has your back and will continue to support them!


IKEv2 IPsec connections are available in VPN Tracker Pro, VIP, Consultant, Team Member, and Team Member Plus editions, with support for iPhone and iPad rolling out in corresponding VPN Tracker for iOS editions.

Start connecting to IKEv2 VPN

  1. Download the latest VPN Tracker version
  2. Choose your vendor or create a custom connection
  3. Enter your connection details and go!

Follow the steps in the wizard to set up your new IKEv2 connection
