Configuring Interface Routes (NSM Procedure)

You can associate a routing table group with the device’s interfaces and specify routing tables into which interface routes are imported. To define the routing tables into which interface routes are imported, you create a routing table group and associate it with the device’s interfaces.

To configure interface routes in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices .
  2. In the Devices list, double click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand Routing Options.
  5. Select Interface Routes.
  6. Add or modify the parameters as specified in Table 63.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply—To apply the routing option settings.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
