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.

  • Cloud Edge supports only IPv4 when configuring Cloud Edge interfaces, VLANs, or functionality related to the gateway's physical or virtual interfaces.

    Additional functionality where only IPv4 is supported includes administrative access, DHCP, Dynamic DNS, DNS, routing, NAT, VPN.

    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.

  • For Cloud Edge gateways with wireless functionality, only IPv4 is supported when configuring the wireless interfaces and related network functionality.

    Wireless functionality is supported only in Routing Mode.

  • 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 L3 VLANs for the LAN2-LAN3 interfaces and the MGMT interface

      For gateways with hardware switch chipset, configure the LAN2-LAN8 interfaces and the MGMT interface.

    • Configure wireless network access settings (for gateways that support wireless functionality)

      L3 VLANS are not supported on wireless network interfaces.

    Bridge Mode

    • Configure interface settings and L3 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

      For gateways with wireless functionality, you can additionally configure DHCP on the main and guest wireless networks if the wireless networks are enabled.

    • For gateways with hardware switch chipset, configure DHCP on LAN2-LAN8 and the MGMT interface

    • You can configure DHCP on L3 VLANS that are subinterfaces of the above physical interfaces.

  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
    • SSL VPN

    • L2TP VPN

  9. Site-to-Site VPN
  10. End-User Management
    • General authentication settings (TTL options for authentication cache)
  11. Wireless Networks
    • Configure network access control for the main and guest wireless networks

    • Manage wireless network client connections.

    • View wireless network configuration information and troubleshooting logs


      You must use the on-premises console to make changes to the wireless configuration.

Network Settings Kept at the Gateway

  1. Interfaces
    • Edit interfaces: WAN or LAN1

    • Add/Edit L3 VLANs: WAN or LAN1

    • Enable or disable interfaces: LAN2-LAN3 (LAN2-LAN7 for gateways with hardware switch chipset)

    • Wireless network interfaces: You cannot disable these interfaces from the interfaces page.

      To disable wireless interfaces, you must disable the respective wireless network using the on-premises console.

  2. DNS - Configure IPv4 DNS servers
  3. Addresses - View and edit address objects used in policy routing rules
  4. Bridge Mode settings
    • Configure the bridge interface (br0) or switch interface (sw0)

    • Configure other bridge or switch settings

  5. Software Switch
    • Configure the 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: WAN or LAN1

  8. Wireless Networks
    • Enable and configure the main and guest wireless networks

    • View wireless network troubleshooting logs


The Cloud Edge 300 does not have a LAN3 interface.
