This article describes how you can configure a connection from your Heroku Private Services to Perimeter 81 using IPSec. This lets you connect to hosts on your private networks and vice versa. Connections are established over the public internet, but all traffic is encrypted using IPSec.

Setting up the VPN connection

After you obtain your private Perimeter 81 gateway, set up a VPN gateway for the Private Space with the following command:

* Shell 
Copy ```
heroku spaces:vpn:connect \
     --name   perimeter81 \   --ip   PUBLIC_IP_OF_YOUR_VPN_GATEWAY \   --cidrs     ''   \   --space   SPACE  

Setting up the gateway takes a few minutes. Use the Wait command to wait for the gateway to be ready:

  * Shell 
Copy ```
heroku   spaces  :vpn  :wait   --space    SPACE   perimeter81  

When the gateway is ready, get the configuration with:

  * Shell 
Copy ```
heroku   spaces  :vpn  :info   --space    SPACE   perimeter81  

This returns a table containing all the details you need to configure Perimeter 81. Here is an example response:

  * Text 
Copy ```
heroku spaces:vpn:info --space SPACE perimeter81
