Configuring a VPN Instance to Identify a Virtual Firewall

Configuring a VPN Instance to Identify a Virtual Firewall


You can configure VPN instances to identify virtual firewalls. A VPN instance corresponds to a virtual firewall. Before configuring a virtual firewall, create a VPN instance and bind interfaces to the VPN instance. The interfaces bound to a VPN instance belong to the same firewall and can be configured with independent security policies.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run ip vpn-instance vpn-instance-name

    A VPN instance is created, and the VPN instance view is displayed.

  3. (Optional) Run description description-information

    The description of the VPN instance is configured.

  4. Run route-distinguisher route-distinguisher

    The RD of the VPN instance is configured.

    After a VPN instance is created, you must specify the RD for the VPN instance. Otherwise, you cannot perform subsequent operations.

  5. Run interface interface-type interface-number

    The interface view is displayed.

  6. Run ip binding vpn-instance vpn-instance-name

    The interface is bound to the VPN instance.

    Bind the interface to the VPN instance before configuring an IP address for the interface. If the interface IP address is configured before the interface is bound to the VPN instance, the interface IP address is deleted. You need to reconfigure the IP address for the interface.

  7. Run ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length }

    An IP address is configured for the interface.
