-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Examples

Example 1: Set the IPsec configuration for an IKEv2 tunnel

This example sets the IPsec configuration for a VPN connection using IKEv2.

The first command uses the Add-VpnConnection cmdlet to add a VPN connection on the server with the address 176.16.1.2. The cmdlet specifies an IKEv2 tunnel.

The second command uses the Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration cmdlet to set the configuration by using the ConnectionName parameter. The command also specifies values for the CipherTransformConstants, EncryptionMethod, IntegrityCheckMethod, and DHGroup parameters.


PS C:\> Add-VpnConnection -Name "Contoso" -ServerAddress 176.16.1.2 -TunnelType Ikev2
PS C:\> Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -AuthenticationTransformConstants None -CipherTransformConstants AES256 -EncryptionMethod AES256 -IntegrityCheckMethod SHA384 -PfsGroup None -DHGroup ECP384 -PassThru -Force
AuthenticationTransformConstants : None

CipherTransformConstants : AES256

DHGroup : ECP384

IntegrityCheckMethod : SHA384

PfsGroup : None

EncryptionMethod : AES256

Example 2: Set the IPsec configuration for an L2TP tunnel

This example sets the IPsec configuration for an L2TP tunnel.

The first command uses the Add-VpnConnection cmdlet to add a VPN connection on the server with the address 176.16.1.2. The command also specifies an L2TP tunnel.

The second command uses the Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration cmdlet to set the configuration. The command also specifies values for the CipherTransformConstants, EncryptionMethod, IntegrityCheckMethod, and DHGroup parameters.


PS C:\> Add-VpnConnection -Name "Contoso" -ServerAddress 176.16.1.2 -TunnelType L2tp
PS C:\> Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -AuthenticationTransformConstants None -CipherTransformConstants AES128 -EncryptionMethod AES128 -IntegrityCheckMethod SHA256 -PfsGroup None -DHGroup ECP256 -PassThru -Force
AuthenticationTransformConstants : None

CipherTransformConstants : AES128

DHGroup : ECP256

IntegrityCheckMethod : SHA256

PfsGroup : None

EncryptionMethod : AES128

Example 3: Set the IPsec configuration for an IKEv2 tunnel with 128-bit data blocks

This example sets the IPsec configuration for an IKEv2 tunnel with authentication transform constants.

The first command uses the Add-VpnConnection cmdlet to add a VPN connection on the server with the address 176.16.1.2. The cmdlet specifies an IKEv2 tunnel.

The second command uses the Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration cmdlet to set the configuration. The command also specifies values for the CipherTransformConstants, EncryptionMethod, IntegrityCheckMethod, and DHGroup parameters, as well as specifying a value for the AuthenticationTransformConstants parameter.


PS C:\> Add-VpnConnection -Name "Contoso" -ServerAddress 176.16.1.2 -TunnelType Ikev2
PS C:\> Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -AuthenticationTransformConstants GCMAES128 -CipherTransformConstants None -EncryptionMethod AES128 -IntegrityCheckMethod SHA256 -PfsGroup None -DHGroup ECP256 -PassThru -Force
AuthenticationTransformConstants : GCMAES128

CipherTransformConstants : None

DHGroup : ECP256

IntegrityCheckMethod : SHA256

PfsGroup : None

EncryptionMethod : AES128


Example 4: Set the IPsec configuration for an IKEv2 tunnel with 256-bit data blocks

This example sets the IPsec configuration for an IKEv2 tunnel, and specifies authentication transform constants.

The first command uses the Add-VpnConnection cmdlet to add a VPN connection on the server with the address 176.16.1.2. The cmdlet specifies an IKEv2 tunnel.

The second command uses the Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration cmdlet to set the configuration. The command also specifies values for the CipherTransformConstants, EncryptionMethod, IntegrityCheckMethod, and DHGroup parameters, as well as specifying a value for the AuthenticationTransformConstants parameter.


PS C:\> Add-VpnConnection -Name "Contoso" -ServerAddress 176.16.1.2 -TunnelType Ikev2
PS C:\> Set-VpnConnectionIPsecConfiguration -ConnectionName "Contoso" -AuthenticationTransformConstants GCMAES256 -CipherTransformConstants None -EncryptionMethod AES256 -IntegrityCheckMethod SHA384 -PfsGroup None -DHGroup ECP384 -PassThru -Force
