This is a simple SLAX script that when run, will display the IKE and IPsec information for a given VPN tunnel on your device.


  • Copy/upload the file to the device:

    scp vpn.slax user@device:/var/db/scripts/op/

  • Run the script from the local file system, in operational mode:

    op url /var/db/scripts/op/vpn.slax

  • Configure the script so it can be run by using it's name:

    set system scripts op file vpn.slax


Once you have the script on your device or ready to run, there is one parameter that will need to be given:

  • tunnel

You can specify this by issuing the following command from operational mode:

op vpn tunnel <name>

<name> can be one of two things:

  • When the word list is given, it will display all of the current, active VPN's.

  • When the name of a VPN is given, it will display all information related to said VPN.


When you run the script with the list parameter, you get the following output:

admin@vpn-firewall> op vpn tunnel list
Name                      Status
Somebody                  UP
Vendor-ABC                UP
Another-Vendor            UP
Vendor-2                  UP
Home                      UP

Enter Name or "q" to quit: 

When run with the name of a VPN, you get the following:

admin@vpn-firewall> op vpn tunnel Vendor-ABC
