"vtl" stands for "Virtual Token Library" (our programmers liked the name), and is a command-line utility that is loaded onto each of your Client computers when you install the Luna Software.
Open a command prompt window or console, cd to the directory where you installed your Luna software, and run the "vtl command (with the -h option, to see the available sub-commands).
These are the commands that you use to manage the relationship between your Client computer and one or more Luna appliances. You must have Administrator privileges on your own computer (the computer that you are using as a client to the Luna SA). If you do not also have authority on the Luna device(s), then you need the co-operation of the person who holds that authority.
