Modifying a Dedicated Tunnel

Last updated: 2021-03-11 11:05:23

    You can modify configurations including bandwidth of a connected dedicated tunnel in the Direct Connect console. This document describes how to modify configurations including bandwidth of a 1.0 or 2.0 tunnel in the console.

    Note:

    For a shared connection, only the connection owner can modify the bandwidth of a dedicated tunnel.

    Prerequisites

    You have owned a tunnel before you can modify it.

    Modifying a Tunnel

    1. Log in to the Direct Connect console and click Dedicated Tunnels on the left sidebar to access the Dedicated Tunnels page.

    2. Locate the dedicated tunnel to be modified, and click More > Change Tunnel under the Operation tunnel.

    3. Choose the operation depending on the dedicated tunnel type, which can be checked on the Basic Information page.

    • Dedicated Tunnel 1.0
      Edit the following configurations in the pop-up dialog box, and click OK.
    Field Description
    Bandwidth Cap Specify the bandwidth cap of the dedicated tunnel, which cannot exceed the maximum bandwidth of the associated connection. If the billing mode is pay-as-you-go by monthly 95th percentile, this parameter does not mean the billable bandwidth. This feature is in canary release. To try it out, please submit a ticket.
    Tencent Cloud Primary Edge IP Enter the connection IP address on the Tencent Cloud side. Please note that changing the IP address will interrupt the service.
    CPE Peer IP Configure the connection IP address on the user (or carrier) side. Please note that changing the IP address will interrupt the service.
    CPE IP Range Modify the CPE IP range. To ensure the refined scheduling capability of your network, follow the Use Limits on Large IP Range.
    BGP ASN Enter the BGP neighbor AS number on the CPE side. Note that 45090 is Tencent Cloud ASN. If this field is left empty, a random ASN will be assigned.
    BGP Key Enter the MD5 value of the BGP neighbor, which defaults to "tencent". If it is left empty, no BGP key is required. It cannot contain special characters such as ?, &, space, ", \, and +.
    • Dedicated Tunnel 2.0
      Modify the information as needed in the Advanced Configuration tab.

      • Modifying tunnel configuration
        Click Edit on the right to modify Tencent Cloud IP, CPE peer IP, or VLAN ID, and click Save.

        Field Description
        Tencent Cloud Primary Edge IP Enter the connection IP address on the Tencent Cloud side. Please note that changing the IP address will interrupt the service.
        CPE Peer IP Configure the connection IP address on the user (or carrier) side. Please note that changing the IP address will interrupt the service.
        VLAN ID A VLAN represents a tunnel. Enter a value in the range of 0-3000. Entering “0” means one dedicated tunnel can be created. MSTP connection passthrough to multiple VLANs requires the carrier's line to enable the Trunk mode.
      • Editing the routing mode

        1. Click Edit on the right of the Routing Mode to modify the route.
          • Static: modify the CPE IP range. To ensure the refined scheduling capability of your network, follow the Use Limits on Large IP Range.
          • BGP: modify BGP ASN or BGP key.
        Field Description
        BGP ASN Enter the BGP neighbor AS number on the CPE side. Note that 45090 is Tencent Cloud ASN. If this field is left empty, a random ASN will be assigned.
        BGP Key Enter the MD5 value of the BGP neighbor, which defaults to "tencent". If it is left empty, no BGP key is required. It cannot contain special characters such as ?, &, space, ", \, and +.
        1. Choose whether to enable health check. Configure Health Check Interval and Number of Failed Health Checks if you choose to enable health check.

          Field Description
          Health Check Interval Enter a number within 1000-3000 to specify a period of time between two Tencent Cloud health checks, in ms.
          Number of Failed Health Checks Switch the route after the configured consecutive failed health checks.
        2. Click OK.
          The new tunnel configuration will take effect in several minutes depending on the network.

    Modifying the Tunnel Bandwidth

    • Dedicated Tunnel 2.0
      You can modify the tunnel bandwidth on the Change Tunnel page. For more information, see Changing Tunnel.

    • Dedicated Tunnel 2.0

      1. Locate the target dedicated tunnel, and click under the Bandwidth column.

        Note:

        Only a Connected dedicated tunnel supports modifying the bandwidth.

      2. Specify a new bandwidth value in the edit box and click OK.

        Note:

        The tunnel bandwidth cap cannot exceed the maximum bandwidth of the associated connection. You can submit a ticket to increase the connection bandwidth.

    Use Limits on Large IP Range

    The direct connect gateway will directly reject a large CPE IP range. To ensure the refined scheduling capability of your network, do not publish the following routes:
    9.0.0.0/8, 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16, 100.64.0.0/10, 131.87.0.0/16, 172.16.0.0/12, and 192.168.0.0/16.
    You can split the above routes as follows for publishing:

    • 9.0.0.0/8
      should be split into 9.0.0.0/9 + 9.128.0.0/9.
    • 10.0.0.0/8
      should be split into 10.0.0.0/9 + 10.128.0.0/9.
    • 172.16.0.0/12
      should be split into 172.16.0.0/13 + 172.24.0.0/13.
    • 192.168.0.0/16
      should be split into 192.168.0.0/17 + 192.168.128.0/17.
    • 100.64.0.0/10
      should be split into 100.64.0.0/11 + 100.96.0.0/11.
    • 131.87.0.0/16
      should be split into 131.87.0.0/17 + 131.87.128.0/17.
    • 172.16.0.0/12
      should be split into 172.16.0.0/13 + 172.24.0.0/13.
    • 192.168.0.0/16
      should be split into 192.168.0.0/17 + 192.168.128.0/17.
