Monitor VPNs on Fireboxes and FireClusters

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes, Locally-managed Fireboxes

On the VPN page, you can view the live status of BOVPNs, Mobile VPN with IKEv2, and Mobile VPN with SSL configured on cloud-managed Fireboxes. For locally-managed Fireboxes with cloud reporting enabled, live status information is available for BOVPN virtual interfaces, Mobile VPN with IKEv2, and Mobile VPN with SSL.

The VPN page is available only when your cloud-managed Firebox, or locally-managed Firebox with cloud reporting, is connected to WatchGuard Cloud.

For locally-managed Fireboxes with cloud reporting, live status information is not available for these features: Manual BOVPNs (BOVPNs that are not virtual interfaces), BOVPN over TLS, Mobile VPN with L2TP, or Mobile VPN with IPSec .

To monitor VPNs on cloud-managed Fireboxes and locally-managed Fireboxes with cloud reporting:

  1. Select Monitor > Devices.
  2. Select a Firebox.
    The Device Summary page for the selected Firebox opens.
  3. Select Live Status > VPN.
