Deploying Network Connectors for OpenVPN Cloud
The Network Connector Deployment workflow is now live on OpenVPN Cloud — and admins’ lives have gotten a little bit easier.
You can now choose to deploy a network connector on a variety of platforms and systems with OpenVPN Cloud. Each related administration guide is linked directly from the portal, so it’s simple to review the instructions for the complete setup while you're working on the deployment. What’s more, administrators can benefit from the updates we’ve made to the Linux deployment scripts: when the scripts are run, they configure each deployed connector to then have forwarding enabled between its various interfaces and to also have NAT switched on.
What Are Network Connectors?
Network connectors are unattended devices that connect subnets to OpenVPN Cloud. You can deploy network connectors on cloud platforms, on premises, through VMs, or on a compatible router. OpenVPN Cloud's Network Connector Deployment lets you choose your deployment scenario and then view the instructions to guide you through configuration efficiently.
Network Connector Deployment lets you:
- View all available deployment scenarios.
- View instructions for each deployment scenario.
- Use scripts and templates to automate deployment.
- Check that the deployment of the network connector is successful.
