When the required L2 VPN settings are configured, you can enable the L2 VPN service on the edge gateway, using the vCloud Director tenant portal.

Note:

If HA is already configured on this edge gateway, ensure that the edge gateway has more than one internal interface configured on it. If only a single interface exists and that has already been used by the HA capability, the L2 VPN configuration on the same internal interface fails.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. On the L2 VPN tab in the tenant portal, click the Enable toggle.
  2. Click Save changes.

Results

The L2 VPN service of the edge gateway becomes active.

What to do next

Create NAT or firewall rules on the Internet-facing firewall side to enable the L2 VPN server to connect to the L2 VPN client.
