I came across this post recently whilst looking for information on connecting a SonicWall firewall directly to Azure through VPN.
My customer found that the uploads speeds through the VPN were slow, although Microsoft references speeds of up to 650Mbs when using GCMAES256. Is this an encryption method we support?
@DominicWild just checked with the available options on Phase 2 and I guess GCM16-256 is what you might looking for?
The screenshot is from Gen6, I guess Gen7 covers it as well.
