Note


This chapter provides information about creating a VPN group. After you create a VPN group, you can add one of the VPN gateways you just configured to it.

The VPN menu and its options are not available in the U.S. export unrestricted version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager.


Find VPN group

To find a VPN group, perform the following procedure:

Procedure
    Step 1   In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, choose Advanced Features > VPN > VPN Group.

    The Find and List VPN Groups window displays. Records from an active (prior) query may also display in the window.

    Step 2   To find all records in the database, ensure the dialog box is empty; go to Step 3.

    To filter or search records

    1. From the first drop-down list box, choose a search parameter.
    2. From the second drop-down list box, choose a search pattern.
    3. Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable.
      Note   

      To add additional search criteria, click the + button. When you add criteria, the system searches for a record that matches all criteria that you specify. To remove criteria, click the button to remove the last added criterion or click the Clear Filter button to remove all added search criteria.

    Step 3   Click Find.

    All matching records display. You can change the number of items that display on each page by choosing a different value from the Rows per Page drop-down list box.

    Step 4   From the list of records that display, click the link for the record that you want to view.
    Note
