You must enable the L2 VPN service on the L2 VPN server (destination NSX Edge). If HA is already configured on this Edge appliance, ensure that Edge has more than one internal interface configured on it. If only a single interface is present and that has already been used by HA, L2 VPN configuration on the same internal interface will fail.


  1. For the destination NSX Edge, navigate to Manage > VPN > L2 VPN.
  2. In L2VPN Service Configuration, click Enable.

What to do next

Create NAT or firewall rule on the internet facing firewall side to enable the client and server to connect to each other.
