Configure a VPN Between USM Appliance Systems

Applies to Product: USM Appliance™ AlienVault OSSIM®

To set up a VPN between two USM Appliance components, for example, between a USM Appliance All-in-One and a USM Appliance Sensor, or between a USM Appliance Server and a USM Appliance Logger, you need to configure through the AlienVault Setup menu, on the System Preferences > Configure Network > Setup VPN screen:

AlienVault Setup menu > System Preferences > Configure Network > Setup VPN

If setting up VPN in USM Appliance version 5.0 or earlier, you first enable VPN, then configure the VPN server.

If setting up VPN in USM Appliance version 5.1 or later, these tasks are reversed, with the VPN server configuration first, then VPN enablement.
