Configuring Peer-to-Peer Site-to-Site VPNs

There are several steps to configuring a peer-to-peer site-to-site VPN.

In the peer-to-peer configuration, a local gateway is connected to a single remote gateway.

  1. Create local and remote address objects that you will need during the VPN configuration.

  2. Choose which IPsec policy to use when configuring the IPsec VPN connections.

    IPsec policies are selected when configuring an IPsec VPN connection.

    You can use the Default IPsec policy, use another existing policy, or you can add a new IPsec policy.
