  • The Sites column lists all configured VPN connections on the Datto Networking Appliance.
  • The Type column indicates whether the connection is a Hub or a Spoke.
  • The Status column reports whether the connection is active or inactive. A status of Unknown indicates that there is a problem with the connection's configuration.
  • The Uptime column displays the length of time that the connection has been active.
  • The Gateway column shows the gateway that is associated with the connection.
  • The Subnets button displays the subnets made available by each connection. Clicking the top Subnets button will display all available subnets from all connections. Clicking a connection-specific subnet will display a card dialog box similar to the example shown in Figure 3.
