How to connect an iPhone to Fortigate firewall for tunneling

This article provides a sample IPSec VPN configuration for use with iPhone and iPad. I’ve tested the following on a Fortigate 60C with FortiOS v4.0 MR3 Patch 9 and v5.0,build3608 (GA Patch 7) but I think it will work even with previous firmware versions. This is the only way to connect an iPhone or an iPad with a Tunnel VPN, because the FortiClient APP only supports Web Bookmarks.
