Managing Network Routes

Follow

Static routes are used in deployments where Vidyo servers are in a DMZ between two segregated firewalls with no route for either internal or external traffic. Network Routes are also used when the Management Interface is enabled and you want to route traffic across that network.

Vidyo recommends this feature not replace adding proper network router to your DMZ to handle the proper subnet routes. Static route setup can lead to security vulnerabilities and should only be configured by advanced network administrators. Vidyo is not responsible for any possible security risk resulting from static route configurations.

 

You can either add a static route for one host at a time or add a route covering a range of IP addresses using a subnet mask.

To manage network routes:

  1. Log in to the System Console.

    For more information, see Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.

    Press the Enter key after each prompt.



  2. Enter m for more options.

  3. Enter A for Advanced Options.

  4. Enter 2 to select the Network Route Management option.

    The Route Management screen displays. Use this screen to add, remove, or remove all routes, navigate routes using Next or Previous, and exit the Route Management screen.

  5. Enter X to return to the Advanced Options menu.

Currently, you can only add a static route for one host at a time. Adding static routes for a range of IP addresses (or subnet) is not supported at this time.

To add network routes:

  1. Log in to the System Console.

    For more information, see Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.

    Press the Enter key after each prompt



  2. Enter m for more options.

  3. Enter A for Advanced Options.

  4. Enter 2 to select the Network Route Management option.

  5. Enter 1 to add a Network Route.

  6. Enter the following information:

    • Destination – Enter an IP address of the target machine for your network route.

      You can either add a static route for one host at a time or add a route covering a range of IP addresses using a subnet mask. To specify a range (e.g.,172.16.1.0 – 172.16.1.255), you would enter 172.16.1.0/24, where 24 is the subnet mask.

    • Gateway – Enter the IP address of the Gateway through which your network route will travel.
    • Interface – Enter the PRODUCTION (eth0) or MANAGEMENT (eth1) interface you want your network route to use.

      If you want to cancel adding your Network Route, press Enter while providing no Destination, Gateway, or Interface information. The system tells you that you must provide valid information and to press any key. Press any key to return to the Route Management screen.



  7. Select y to confirm the change and add your Network Route.

    Your Network Route is then listed and numbered on the top of the Route Management screen.
