Network

View and configure network settings in the cloud to process and identify network traffic on registered gateways. Once a gateway registers with the Cloud Edge Cloud Console, certain network settings move to the cloud and cannot be edited through the Cloud Edge on-premises console. Certain critical network settings that will cause network break down are configured through the on-premises console.

Note:
  • Cloud Edge supports only IPv4 when configuring Cloud Edge interfaces or functionality related to the appliance's physical interfaces.

    Functionality where only IPv4 is supported includes administrative access, DHCP, Dynamic DNS, DNS, routing, NAT, VPN, and virtual interfaces such as br0. See Support for IPv6.

  • Cloud Edge Cloud Console does not support adding or editing a bridge when deployed in Routing Mode.

  • The Software Switch configuration is supported only in Bridge Mode and must be configured using the on-premises console.

  • If some network settings did not deploy successfully, the reason is displayed on Cloud Edge Cloud Console.

  • Gateways collect and send network information to the Cloud Edge Cloud Console through a network heartbeat.

Network Settings Moved to the Cloud

  1. Interfaces

    Routing Mode

    • Configure interfaces and VLANs for the LAN2-LAN3 and MGMT interfaces

    Bridge Mode

    • Configure interface settings and VLANs only on the MGMT interface

  2. Administrative access (after gateway registration)
    • Configure administrative access for using the on-premises console, ping, SSH, and SNMP (all interfaces)

  3. DHCP (in Routing Mode only)
    • Configure the LAN2-LAN3 and MGMT interfaces to act as DHCP servers

  4. Service - Dynamic DNS
  5. Routing (in Routing Mode only)
    • View the routing table (also available from the on-premises console)

    • Configure static routes

  6. NAT
  7. Bandwidth control
  8. User VPN
    • PPTP VPN

    • SSL VPN

    • L2TP VPN

  9. Site-to-Site VPN
  10. End-User Management
    • General authentication settings (TTL options for authentication cache)

Network Settings Kept at the Gateway

  1. Interfaces
    • Edit interfaces: WAN1 or LAN1

    • Add/Edit VLANs: WAN1 or LAN1

    • Enable or disable interfaces: LAN2-LAN3

  2. DNS - Configure IPv4 DNS servers
  3. Addresses - View and edit address objects used in policy routing rules
  4. Bridge Mode settings
    • Configure the virtual bridge interface (br0)

    • Configure other bridge settings
  5. Software Switch
    • Configure the virtual bridge interface (br0)
    • Configure other software switch settings
  6. Routing
    • Create policy route rules
    • View routing table (also available from Cloud Edge Cloud Console
  7. Service - DHCP

    Configure interfaces to act as DHCP servers: WAN1 or LAN1

Note:

The Cloud Edge 300 does not have a LAN3 interface.
