A tunnel represents a private virtual connection established among two or more endpoints across a shared infrastructure by employing protocol encapsulation. Common encapsulation techniques include Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE), IP-in-IP, and IPSec. NetBox supports modeling both peer-to-peer and hub-and-spoke tunnel topologies.
Device and virtual machine interfaces are associated to tunnels by creating tunnel terminations.
A unique name assigned to the tunnel for identification.
The operational status of the tunnel. By default, the following statuses are available:
Custom tunnel statuses
Additional tunnel statuses may be defined by setting
Tunnel.status under the
FIELD_CHOICES configuration parameter.
The administrative group to which this tunnel is assigned (optional).
The encapsulation protocol or technique employed to effect the tunnel. NetBox supports GRE, IP-in-IP, and IPSec encapsulations.
An optional numeric identifier for the tunnel.
For IPSec tunnels, this is the IPSec Profile employed to negotiate security associations.
