Hi everyone, I am currently using traditional mode VPN in my R62. If I were to switch to using simplied mode, will I impact any of my exisiting VPN tunnels?

You can use the automatic conversion tool in the Smart Dashboard.

You may expect some impact, mostly related to granularity of traditional mode. The conversion wizard should let you know.

Please understand that SImplified mode automatically adds the gateways into the encryption domain. This could potentially affect both VPNs and normal Firewall traffic.
I am not a fan of Simplified mode because it tends to make many inaccurate assumptions about your intentions.
