Hi Anthony thanks for the reply but no, that's not what I want, i'm looking for something similar to the documents about connecting to a ssh vpn from command line for an ipsec vpn, in some forum threads use ipsec -k -b <connection name> but in my case this command only clears the vpn information for this connection and no connection to <connection name> is establish

Hello lindel,

 

sorry for the late reply.

 

One of our engineer replied:

 

"This option is available only for the SSL-VPN. We do not support it for the dialup ipsec."

 

I hope it would help you!
