VPN Connection

To download the required SAP data to the Angles for SAP Cloud environment, you will need to organize connectivity to your SAP systems. The Angles for SAP team will support you when setting this up. Our Angles for SAP consultant will require a temporary VPN account to log in to your network so that they can remotely log in to your SAP system.

A secure VPN tunnel between the Angles for SAP environment and the network that hosts your SAP environment is required for using Angles for SAP. In the figure below, you can see a high-level overview of a connection set-up from a customer network to an Angles for SAP cloud environment. Note that the subnets of the SAP systems and the end-users are separate. This requires configuring separate VPN tunnels.

Cloud_Network_Overview

Your Angles for SAP consultant will provide you with a VPN questionnaire that needs to be filled in to start setting up the VPN tunnels. This document requests the following information about your router:

  • Make
  • Model
  • Public IP of the VPN router
  • Subnet(s) of SAP system networks
    • Required to initiate extraction from SAP and deliver the data back to the cloud environment.
    • Required to ensure that proper bandwidth is available for optimal data transfer performance.
  • Subnet(s) of end-user networks
    • Required to support a connection from end-users to Angles for SAP.
    • Required to ensure that all end-user networks can access Angles for SAP.
  • IP ranges in your network (to make sure that no conflicts occur with the Angles for SAP setup)

Once that information has been received, the Angles for SAP consultant will set up the VPN tunnels on the cloud side. The consultant will then send you the VPN configuration that you can execute to set up and enable the VPN tunnels. This requires an IT or support employee on your side.

Setting up the VPN tunnels can take some time as both sides need their side to be configured correctly for the tunnels to be secure. Some time needs to be set aside at the beginning of the project to set this up, as it might involve several meetings and testing sessions.

Once the VPN tunnels have been established, the Angles for SAP system can safely and securely attempt to connect to the SAP system to retrieve the data.

VPN to the customer network

If the SAP systems are not in the customer company network but located in a different datacenter, a second VPN tunnel must be set up between the Angles for SAP Cloud environment and the customer company network. This second VPN tunnel will be used so that end users can safely and securely connect to the Angles for SAP web application, log in, and create/view their reports.

The steps for setting up the SAP VPN tunnel must be executed for this VPN tunnel as well.
