If the edge gateway for your vCloud Director organization virtual datacenter has been converted to an advanced edge gateway, you can navigate to the vCloud Director tenant portal's IPsec VPN screen to begin configuring the IPsec VPN service for that edge gateway.

Prerequisites

For the ability to use the vCloud Director tenant portal to work with an edge gateway's settings, the edge gateway must have already been converted to an advanced edge gateway using the Convert to Advanced Gateway action on the edge gateway in the vCloud Director Web console. See the vCloud Director Administrator's Guide for details.

Procedure

  1. Launch the tenant portal using the following steps.
    1. Log in to the vCloud Director Web console and navigate to the edge gateway.
    2. Right-click the name of the edge gateway and click Edge Gateway Services in the context menu.

      The tenant portal opens in a new browser tab and displays the Edge Gateway screen for that edge gateway.

  2. In the tenant portal, navigate to VPN > IPsec VPN.

What to do next

Use the IPsec VPN Sites screen to configure an IPsec VPN connection. At least one connection must be configured before you can enable the IPsec VPN service on the edge gateway. See Configure the IPsec VPN Site Connections for the Edge Gateway.
