Re: VPN tu

For each IPSec tunnel, there are two Security Associations (SAs) formed: inbound and outbound.  Although we tend to refer to this VPN Tunnel in the singular, it actually consists of two "flows" of encrypted data: inbound and outbound.  A similar concept is employed in the state table element "connections" where each connection is tracked as two separate flows referred to as c2s (client to server - outbound) and s2c (server to client - inbound).

Re: VPN tu

I believe on an R80.10+ gateway the i:0 indicates the CoreXL Firewall Worker Instance number (in this case instance #0) that is handling that SA.
