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:

  1. If you have not done so already, access the WAN Router Setup dialog box.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. If the Neighbor is NATed across network segments, clear the Internal IP same as external IP option.
  5. Skip this step if the Neighbor is not NATed across network segments.


    In the Internal IP box, type the Neighbor's inner IP Address.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. Repeat Steps 1 - 7 for each WAN Router you want to add to the Neighbors list.
  9. When you are done entering Neighbors, click OK.
