VPN: Toggle VPN's via UserPortal
I think it would be useful if an IPSEC VPN definition could optionally be assigned a owner. That owner would then have the option to activate/deactivate the VPN tunnel after logging into the user portal.
Use case is this: companies may from time to time allow a VPN to be setup to access for example a web site. Unlike an individual SSL VPN this access may be needed by an outside team, so multiple single access SSL VPNs are not satisfactory. After the firewall manager configures the connection and ensures the correctness of the rules, it becomes the responsibility of the department owning the web site to turn on and off the access when required. An access period could also be set for automatic termination of the connection. Astaro would log the change in status, and optionally mail concerned parties. No need for change orders which in smaller companies can be problematic.
Maybe similar to existing request for SSLVPN, but this relates to IPSEC connections.
I'm not aware of another firewall that allows this, however I can see this could be useful in quite a few use case situations.
