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.
- 200 Mbps, 500 Mbps and 1,000 Mbps bandwidths are currently only available in North China (Beijing), East China (Shanghai), South China (Guangzhou), Southwest China (Chengdu), Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions of China(Hong Kong, China), East China (Nanjing) and other availability zones. To use them, please submit a ticket.
- Only new gateways but not existing gateways are supported on 200 Mbps, 500 Mbps and 1,000 Mbps bandwidths.
- If the VPN gateway uses 200 Mbps, 500 Mbps, or 1,000 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.|
|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.|
|Bandwidth cap||Set a reasonable bandwidth cap for the VPN gateway according to the actual application scenarios.|
|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.|
