Edgerouter: Disabling IPSec

There are times where you just need to disable IPSec VPN Connection to/from your Edgerouter. While there are ways to stop the service I wanted something that would last during a reboot and retain my configurations for when I need it. This can be done with a few simple steps in the web UI.

To disable the VPN

  • Under the Config, Tree tab select the VPN branch.
  • Navigate to the IPsec branch.
  • Navigate to the site-to-site sub-branch.
  • Select the peer branch
  • Select the VPN connection in question.
  • Under the tunnel branch, you will see disable with a little ‘+’ next to it.

Selecting that little ‘+’ symbol will disable this site-to-site connection.

To enable the VPN again

  • Under the Config, Tree tab select the VPN branch.
  • Navigate to the IPsec branch.
  • Navigate to the site-to-site sub-branch.
  • Select the peer branch
  • Select the VPN connection in question.
  • Under the tunnel branch, you will see disable with a little ‘+’ next to it

Select that little ‘-’ symbol will enable the site-to-site connection.
