Show VPN Connection Configuration Information

WARNING!

Due to RightScale Legacy Platform deprecation, this section covering Amazon Web Services Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) is no longer valid. Please see the Network Manager section for current information on creating and managing AWS VPCs.


Objective

Show the connection configuration information for your VPN.

Note:  This is very generic information displayed in XML format.  We plan on updating this information to support more readable information for Cisco and Juniper routers.

Prerequisites

A configured VPN connection.

Steps

Step 1:  Navigation

  • Navigate to Clouds -> AWS US -> VPC
  • Select the Gateways tab
  • Under the ID column of the VPN Connections table, select the action link for the VPN

The following information is displayed:

  • VPN Gateway
  • Customer Gateway
  • Type (e.g. ipsec.1)
  • State (available/unavailable)
  • Configuration - The configuration information is displayed in XML.  A partial example follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

  <customer_gateway_id>cgw-cdaf3aa5</customer_gateway_id>
