Run the BOVPN Tunnel Configuration Report

After you add a tunnel, you can run a report to see a summary of all tunnel settings. The BOVPN Tunnel Configuration Report is a section of the XTM Configuration Report that shows the configuration settings for the selected tunnel. This report can be useful if you need to troubleshoot the VPN. It can also make it easier to compare the configured settings with the settings of the remote VPN endpoint device.

To run the report:

  1. In the Tunnels list, select a configured tunnel.
  2. Click Report.
    The XTM  Configuration Report appears in a new window. It automatically scrolls to the section for the selected tunnel.

For more information about this report, see Use the BOVPN Configuration Reports.
