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.


To use the vCloud Director tenant portal to work with an edge gateway's settings, the edge gateway must be converted to an advanced edge gateway. You can do this on the edge gateway in the vCloud Director Web console or from the tenant portal.
