DrayTek routers running 3.8.9.1 or later firmware support IPsec with XAuth authentication, which allows many VPN clients to authenticate with a username and password. With IPSec XAuth you are not limited to pre-shared key because each teleworker can use their unique credentials.
This article demonstrates how to create an IPsec Xauth tunnel between Vigor Router and iOS Client.

Vigor Router Configuration

1. Go to [VPN and Remote Access] > [IPsec General Setup]
a. Enter Pre-Shared Key for Xauth User
b. Click OK to save
