Reviewed on 25 April 2023Published on 17 October 2022

The private RPNv1 network is connected to the second physical interface of your Dedibox. It is connected to a totally secure network, different from the one you use to connect to the Internet.

Requirements:
  • You have an account and are logged into the Dedibox console
  • You have a Dedibox server with RPNv1 connectivity

How to create a new RPNv1 group from the Scaleway console

  1. Click RPN > RPN groups in the navigation bar on top of your console to enter the RPN groups configuration page.

  2. Click Create group to create a new RPN group. The group creation interface displays.

  3. Enter a name for your RPN group, select the Dedibox servers you want to add to the group and then save.

    Tip:

    It takes about five to ten minutes to activate a new RPNv1 group. Once the group is enabled, its status changes to active.

How to update or modify a RPNv1 group

  1. Click RPN > RPN groups in the navigation bar on top of your console to enter the RPN groups configuration page.

  2. Click Edit group below the servers listing of the group you want to edit.

  • Tick the boxes next to the servers you want to remove from the group. Then click Remove selected servers from group.
  • Click Add servers to the group to add more servers to the RPN group. A pop up displates. Tick the boxes next to the servers you want to add. Save by clicking Add to group.

The servers are added/removed from the group and the RPN configuraion is being updated.

How to share a RPN group with another Dedibox user

  1. Click RPN > RPN groups in the navigation bar on top of your console to enter the RPN groups configuration page.

  2. Click the Shared groups tab to display the list of the shared RPN groups.

Note:

The owner of the server external to your account receives an email to confirm the sharing of the RPN group. You can not reach any external server until the RPN sharing has been confirmed by the servers’ owner.
