vpn 0 interface tunnel-interface—Configure the interface to be a secure DTLS or TLS WAN transport connection (on vEdge routers, vManage NMSs, and vSmart controllers only). Configuring an interface to be a transport tunnel enables the flow of control and data traffic on the interface. On vEdge routers, it configures the interface's TLOC attributes, which are carried in the TLOC OMP routes that the vEdge router sends to the vSmart controllers in its domain. For the TLOC attributes on vEdge routers, you must configure, at a minimum, a color and an encapsulation type. These two attributes, along with the router's system IP address, are the 3-tuple that uniquely identify each TLOC.
Because tunnel interfaces connect to the WAN transport, they can be present only in VPN 0, so you can include the tunnel-interface command only when configuring VPN 0.
On vEdge routers, you can configure up to six tunnel interfaces (a combination of tunnel interfaces on both physical and loopback interfaces). On vSmart controllers, you can configure only one tunnel interface.
