VPN DVTI tunnel source

When configuring VPNs using a Dynamic Virtual Tunnel Interface (DVTI), it is unnecessary to use the tunnel source command. When creating a static VTI, you must bind that VTI to a physical interface. However, when creating a dynamic VTI, you create a virtual template that is not associated with any physical interface. Whenever a new IPSec session is needed, the router automatically creates a virtual access interface that is cloned from the virtual template. This can occur on any of the router’s interfaces, so there is no single interface that is the tunnel’s source.
