Update an Application for Networks or Hosts

Applications are defined as FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Names) including protocols, and/or ports. Follow the steps below to update an Application for Networks or Hosts:

  1. Sign in to the OpenVPN Cloud administration portal at https://cloud.openvpn.com.
  2. Access Networks or Hosts and click the edit icon (pencil) of the entity that you want to edit.
  3. Click the Applications tab.
  4. Click the Add Application button.
  5. Enter an Application Name.
  6. Specify a Domain.
  7. For Networks (Optional) toggle Allow Embedded IP to ON. Note: Embedded IP enables implicit domain resolution. This is useful for IoT / IIoT devices which can allow remote SSH access. You can use the private IP address of the device and the Network Application Domain Name to create a hostname without configuring a DNS record. For example SSH@<private ip address>.Network Application Domain Name.
  8. Select the Application Type(s) (protocols and/or ports).
  9. (Optional) Enter a Description.
  10. Click Add.
