Routing Table

In the factory default configuration, the Cloud Edge routing table contains a single static IPv4 default route. Add routing information to the routing table by defining additional IPv4 static routes. The table may include several different routes to the same destination—the IPv4 addresses of the next-hop router specified in those routes or the Cloud Edge interfaces associated with those routes may vary.

Cloud Edge evaluates the information in the routing table and selects the best route to a destination, typically the shortest distance between the Cloud Edge appliance and the closest next-hop router. In some cases, a longer route is selected if the best route is unavailable. Cloud Edge installs the best available routes in the unit’s forwarding table, which is a subset of the unit’s routing table. Packets are forwarded according to the information in the forwarding table.

Note:

Cloud Edge does not support IPv6 routing.
