IPSec VPN has many advantages, but there are numerous configuration options and devices in an IPSec VPN network. This creates complexities for management, problem identification, and resolution. There are many configuration commands and professional parameters that can make VPN deployments challenging. In some environments, spoke equipment is SOHO or software based and may only have private IP addresses. Also, running spoke equipment behind NAT may be unmanageable for typical network management software. HP IPSec VPN Manager (IVM) is a module for the HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) platform that provides features for all aspects of IPSec VPN management. This includes real-time and historic status, performance monitors, problem recognition, and resolution. In addition, IVM expedites IPSec VPN deployments and displays a graphical VPN topology, VPN channel status, and other configurable monitors. It is scalable and can configure and monitor multiple devices at once.
