What is it?
A Network represents a Customer Site (on-premises or IaaS) and is defined by:
- IP address ranges subnets of private networks at the site
- Routing of exiting Internet traffic (i.e. OpenVPN Cloud Internet Access)
- Whether the Network is an exit point for VPN Internet traffic (i.e. OpenVPN Cloud VPN Egress)
- One or more Connector(s) that is used to connect to an OpenVPN Cloud VPN Region in order to make the Network a part of the Customer’s VPN
Examples of a Network could be the private Network in HQ and Branch locations or Virtual Private Cloud networks in IaaS provider’s Cloud.
Who should use this?
An Administrator will configure a Network if that Network is to be part of the VPN in order to provide site-to-site or point-to-site access (remote access)
Why should I use this?
Defining a Network allows for the configuration of Connector(s) which on connection to OpenVPN Cloud becomes part of the VPN. More than one Connector can be used to connect the private network to the VPN. Multiple Connectors allow for redundancy and prevent a single point of failure. Connectors for the same Network can connect to different VPN Regions or the same VPN Region.
