Problem this snippet solves:

This script can be called from the command line and used to reach out to a VE to license it, perform minimum configuration and provision an IPSec interface-mode tunnel.


This is not best practice, not hardened, etc. This is a foundation, not a solution.


How to use this snippet:

The script has built-in CLI help.

Code :

#!/usr/bin/env python3
