A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network that provides connectivity between two remote networks via an Internet tunnel connection. The VPN tunnel encapsulates the data, carries the data to the destination and then de-encapsulates the data for the receiver. The VPN Client Connection Status page displays the VPN clients that are configured on the router and their connection status. This article explains how to view the status of the VPN tunnel clients on the RV220W.
VPN Client Connection Status
Step 1. Log in to the web configuration utility and choose Status > VPN Client Connection Status. The VPN Client Connection Status page opens:
The following information is displayed in the VPN User Connection Status Table:
• Username — Displays the name of the user of the VPN tunnel.
• Remote IP — Displays the remote IP address of the VPN tunnel.
• Status — Displays the current status of the VPN client. There are two possible statuses:
– Online — Indicates that the VPN tunnel has been established and there is a connection.
– Offline— Indicates that the VPN tunnel is not connected or the connection has failed.
• Start Time— Displays the time when the VPN user began the connection.
• End Time — Displays the time when the VPN user ended the connection.
• Duration — Displays how much time the VPN user used the tunnel in minutes.
• Protocol — Displays the protocol that the user used to establish the connection with the VPN tunnel. There are two possible options, QuickVPN and Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP).
Step 2. (Optional) To disconnect a user from the VPN tunnel, click Disconnect.
Note: The page refreshes automatically to display the most current status for VPN users. To change the refresh settings, follow steps 3 to 5.
Step 3. To modify the poll interval, click Stop. Wait until the Auto refresh is stopped.
Step 4. Enter the time in seconds that you would like to assign to the poll in the Poll Interval field. This is the time it takes for the page to refresh.
Step 5. Click Start to begin the page refresh.
