About the IPsec VPNs Events Page

To access this page, click Monitor > Security Events > IPsec VPNs.

Use this page to view information about security events based on IPSec VPN policies. The event viewer provides a view of all IPsec VPN events.

Using the time-range slider, you can quickly focus on the area of activity that you are most interested in. Once the time range is selected, all of the data presented in your view is refreshed automatically. You can also use the custom button to set a custom time range.

There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the Summary View tab or the Detail View tab.
