    Configuring a Static Route for Internet-Bound Traffic

    You can use a static route to forward Internet-bound traffic to the private address of your NAT device. The NAT device translates between private and public IP addresses. The static route is propagated to all VPN sites through a routing protocol, such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

    To configure a static route for forwarding Internet-bound traffic to your NAT device:

    1. In the Selfcare Portal task pane, select Administration > Site Configuration.
    2. From the Site selection list, select the site for which you want to configure the static route.
    3. Select the Routing Configuration tab.

      The Routing Configuration page is displayed.

    4. Create a new static route:
      1. From the Routes list, select the Add (+) icon.

        The Add Route Destination Prefix dialog box is displayed.

      2. Specify the IP address in the Add Route Destination Prefix dialog box.

        Note: You must specify the route in Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR) format.

      3. Select the Add button.

        The new route appears in the Routes list.

      4. From the Next Hops group box, select the Add (+) icon.

        A new row is added to the Next Hops group box.

      5. Select the newly added row and specify the IP address of the next hop for the route.
    5. (Optional) Modify an existing static route:
      1. From the Routes list, select the route you want to modify.

        The Next Hops group box is updated with a list of next hop IP addresses.

      2. Select either the Add (+) or Delete (-) icon in the Next Hops group box and make your configuration changes.
    6. (Optional) Delete an existing static route:
      1. From the Routes list, select the route you want to delete.
      2. Select the Delete (-) icon next to the Routes list.
    7. Select Update to save your changes.
