Interfaces

Cloud Edge autodetects the Cloud Edge appliance's L2 and L3 interfaces.

Routing Mode

After registering the gateway on Cloud Edge, you must manage all interfaces with the exception of the WAN and LAN1 interfaces from Cloud Edge Cloud Console.

  • All interfaces are configured as L3 interfaces with IPv4 addresses.

  • You must configure the LAN2-LAN3 and MGMT interfaces with static IPv4 addresses.

Note: You must configure WAN1 and LAN1 from the Cloud Edge on-premises console.

Bridge Mode

Bridge Mode interfaces are read-only from Cloud Edge Cloud Console. You must configure and manage the Virtual Interface and settings for the physical interfaces from the on-premises console.

  • The Virtual Interface (br0) is the L3 interface Cloud Edge uses to connect to the Internet and is assigned an IPv4 address.

  • All physical interfaces are configured as L2 interfaces.

    You can configure certain settings on the physical interfaces, depending on the Cloud Edge appliance model.

  • You can configure the MGMT port as an L3 interface from Cloud Edge Cloud Console.

Software Switch

Software Switch interfaces are read-only from Cloud Edge Cloud Console. You must configure and manage Software Switch interfaces from the on-premises console.

  • The Virtual Interface (br0) is the L3 interface Cloud Edge uses to connect to the internet and is assigned an IPv4 address.

  • You must configure at least three L2 interfaces as part of the software switch, WAN1 and LAN1 and at least one of LAN2 or LAN3 from the on-premises console.

    You can configure the MTU setting on the physical L2 interfaces.

  • You can configure the MGMT port as an L3 interface from Cloud Edge Cloud Console.

Note:

Cloud Edge 300 does not have a LAN3 interface.

For all deployment modes and all Cloud Edge models, you can enable or disable certain interfaces.
