How do I verify that VLL is working as expected, from the client?

Generally, VLL is used to establish a connection between two remote networks. Initially to establish a VLL tunnel, please follow this quickstart guide. Then take a look at the following points to verify if the VLL is working as expected:

1) To check if a tunnel has been established from the client side:

Then to verify that a VLL tunnel is set up you should see the status, on the client side, in the “Remote LAN (VLL)” section as “Client Connections: 1(of 1)”. So this verifies that one virtual link is established between the server and the client.

2) Checking the connectivity using ping:

Now you should be able to ping the address of a machine in the remote network. If you don’t have any devices to ping in the remote subnet, then ping to the LAN IP of the server. If the ping is working, then the VLL tunnel is said to be established and working fine.

3) If the ping isn’t working:

If the ping is not working, then you have to make sure that your traffic to the remote network, is travelling through the VLL tunnel, which indicates that there is an issue with routes on the device. So you have to check your interface group options, on the “ADVANCED” tab, and see if any rules are overriding the VLL specifications.

For example, the following default configuration will have no issues with VLL specifications.

Also you need to take a look at the manual route section, on the “ADVANCED” tab, and see if the traffic is destined to the remote subnet is being forced a route. Again, the following default configuration will have no effect on your VLL configuration:
