L2TPV3 Tunnel

To define an L2TPV3 configuration for a profile:

  1. Select the L2TPv3 Tunnel tab.
    Click to expand in new window
  2. Review the following L2TPv3 tunnel configuration data:


    Displays the name of each listed L2TPv3 tunnel assigned upon creation.

    Local IP Address

    Lists the IP address assigned as the local tunnel end point address, not the interface IP address. This IP is used as the tunnel source IP address. If this parameter is not specified, the source IP address is chosen automatically based on the tunnel peer IP address.


    Displays the MTU (maximum transmission unit) size for each listed tunnel. The MTU is the size (in bytes) of the largest protocol data unit that the layer can pass between tunnel peers.

    Use Tunnel Policy

    Lists the L2TPv3 tunnel policy assigned to each listed tunnel.

    Local Hostname

    Lists the tunnel specific hostname used by each listed tunnel. This is the host name advertised in tunnel establishment messages.

    Local Router ID

    Specifies the router ID sent in the tunnel establishment messages.

  3. Either select Add to create a new L2TPv3 tunnel configuration, Edit to modify an existing tunnel configuration or Delete to remove a tunnel from those available to this profile.
