vCloud Air - Creating an IPSEC VPN Connection

VPN Appliance for VMWARE
Choose to establish the VPN to a remote network, and then verify the local network. In the Configure Services: The peer ID is the internal address shown in the red box, but the peer IP is the external address shown in the blue box. This is because you can get to the external address peer IP , but the peer ID is the actual gateway. Key points about the diagram are as follows:. Go Premium Individual Business. In this example, the IP address that was assigned during the creation of the virtual data center is

Returning to the diagram, for creating the VPN in this example, the local network is Designate Peer Networks The final task for setting up the network on the vCloud Air side is to designate peer networks.

The peer ID is the internal address shown in the red box, but the peer IP is the external address shown in the blue box. This is because you can get to the external address peer IP , but the peer ID is the actual gateway.

In other words, the peer IP is how you get to the peer ID. Again, you can see on the diagram that the ID is the actual outside interface on the Edge Gateway, but the IP that vCloud Air needs to use to get to the gateway is whatever is translated through the external router. Select the Show Key box and copy the shared key. This is basically the same process in reverse. To set up the network on the on-premises side, you start by using a shortcut to prepopulate the peer settings and then move to configuring the VPN.

Gather the Peer Settings An especially helpful shortcut in this process is to gather the peer settings from vCloud Air: Retrieve the addresses for the local network and peer network from the gathered peer settings that were listed in vCloud Air. Select the local endpoint and retrieve the local ID address from the gathered peer settings that were listed in vCloud Air.

Select the Show Key box, but instead of letting the key auto-generate, paste the shared key that you copied earlier on the other side. Review the Architecture Diagram This architecture diagram gives an overview of what is being built.

Key points about the diagram are as follows: There is a vSphere instance on the left, which includes a routed network that goes through a vCloud Networking and Security Edge Gateway There are a number of virtual machines connected to this Edge device, which we want to connect to the virtual machines in vCloud Air. Another router sits between the local Edge device and the Internet, which creates some address translation issues. This scenario is fairly typical.

From the Dashboard, click the desired virtual data center. In the Configure Services: Here you can see firewall rules that were set up previously for another purpose that are more open than typical. Because these rules allow traffic to flow in and out between the Edge Gateway, they already accommodate IPsec traffic.

So, for this example, the firewalls do not need modification, but in your case, you may want to add more specific rules. Still in the Configure Services: This name can serve as a reminder that you want it to connect to the local vSphere instance. Choose to establish the VPN to a remote network, and then verify the local network. In this case, the local network is Returning to the VPN Configuration window, enter the full peer network address and set the local endpoint.
