A VPN gateway is a VPN connection instance. Therefore, please create an IPsec VPN gateway before using a VPN connection to securely access the Tencent Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) from external networks. This document shows you how to create a VPN gateway in the console.
To create a VPC-based VPN gateway, you need to create a VPC in the same region as the VPN gateway first. For more information, see Creating VPCs.
- Only new gateways but not existing gateways are supported on 200 Mbps, 500 Mbps, 1,000 Mbps and 3,000 Mbps bandwidths.
- If the VPN gateway uses 200 Mbps, 500 Mbps, 1,000 Mbps or 3,000 Mbps bandwidths, AES128+MD5 is recommended for VPN tunnel encryption.
|Gateway Name||Enter the VPN gateway name (up to 60 characters)|
|Region||Display the region of the VPN gateway|
|AZ||Select the availability zone of the current gateway|
|Protocol Type||IPSec and SSL protocols are supported.|
|Bandwidth cap||Set a reasonable bandwidth cap for the VPN gateway according to the actual application scenarios.|
|Associated Network||This parameter indicates whether you create a CCN-based VPN/VPN gateway or a VPC-based VPN/VPN gateway.
|Network||Specify the VPC to be associated with the VPN gateway only when the associated network is VPC.|
|Tag||Tags mark VPN gateway resources so that these resources can be queried and managed efficiently. Tag is not a required configuration. You can decide whether to configure it according to your demand.|
|Billing Mode||Bill-by-traffic mode is supported. This billing mode is applicable to scenarios with significant bandwidth fluctuations.|
