Usage Examples

Create Your Instance using a Command Line Interface (CLI), the REST-API, or our Webinterface.

OpenStack CLI

Use the OpenStack CLI command to create a new VPN along with its policies.

# Create a IKE policy
openstack vpn ike policy create ikepolicy --ike-version v2 --auth-algorithm sha256 --encryption-algorithm aes-256 --pfs group14
# Create a IPsec policy
openstack vpn ipsec policy create ipsecpolicy --auth-algorithm sha256 --encryption-algorithm aes-256 --pfs group14
# Create VPN Service
openstack vpn service create vpn --router myrouter
# Create the Endpoint Groups
openstack vpn endpoint group create local-epg --type subnet --value mysubnet
openstack vpn endpoint group create right-epg --type cidr --value
# Finally create the site connection
openstack vpn ipsec site connection create site2site --vpnservice vpn --ikepolicy ikepolicy --ipsecpolicy ipsecpolicy --local-endpoint-group local-epg --peer-address --peer-id --peer-endpoint-group right-epg --psk secret


The provided REST-API allows you to list, create, delete VPN site-to-site connections. There are also libraries for the most popular programming languages available.

curl -X GET https://cloud.netways.de:9696/v2.0/vpn/ipsec-site-connections/UUID 
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" 
    -H "X-Auth-Token: $TOKEN"

Nice to know

Is there a negative performance impact using a VPN?

Yes, there can be a negative performance impact when using a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This is because VPNs encrypt and tunnel all network traffic between the client and server, which can add additional overhead and introduce latency into the network connection.

When using a VPN, all traffic must first be encrypted, then transmitted over the VPN tunnel to the VPN server, where it is decrypted and forwarded to its destination. This extra encryption and decryption process can add additional processing time and increase the amount of data that needs to be transmitted, which can result in slower network performance.

What are the advantages of using a VPN to connect to your infrastructure?

VPNs can help improve security, provide remote access to resources, bypass geo-restrictions, protect privacy, and save costs. However, it’s important to keep in mind that VPNs can also have performance impacts and require additional configuration and management, so it’s important to weigh the benefits and drawbacks before implementing a VPN solution.
