Editing the Neighbors List
Using the Wan Routing menu you can add, modify, and/or delete a WAN Router to/from the Neighbors list.
To add a WAN Router to the Neighbors list:
- If you have not done so already, access the WAN Router Setup dialog box.
- On the Neighbor Configuration section,
in the Multicast Domain box,
enter the unique multicast domain of the network segment on which
the Neighbor resides.
Note: The value you use here must be used as the Multicast Domain in the WAN Router section when you set up WAN Routing on the respective Neighbors.
- In the External IP box, type
the IP Address of the Neighbor that faces this machine.
- If the Neighbor is NATed across network segments, enter its outer IP Address.
- If the Neighbor is not NATed across network segments, enter its native IP Address.
- If the Neighbor is NATed across network segments, clear the Internal IP same as external IP option.
- Skip this step if the Neighbor
is not NATed across network segments.
In the Internal IP box, type the Neighbor's inner IP Address.
- If you want this WAN Router
to wait for the Neighbor to connect to it, click Passive connect.
Note: If the Passive connect option is not selected, this WAN Router actively attempts to connect to its Neighbor. Both sides can be set to actively connect to one another.
- Click Add.
The new Neighbor displays in the Neighbors list using the convention:
<Multicast Domain> <External IP>
- <Multicast Domain> and <External IP> are separated by a space.
- <Multicast Domain> is the value of the box in the Neighbor Configuration section.
- <External IP> matches the value of the External IP box.
- Repeat Steps 1 - 7 for each WAN Router you want to add to the Neighbors list.
- When you are done entering Neighbors, click OK.
