Configuring Physical and Function Zone Interfaces in ScreenOS Devices Overview


In the Interface screens, you can configure the physical interfaces and, if available, the function zone interfaces. Double-click the interface in the Interface screen. For physical and function zone interfaces, you can configure the following settings:

  • Interface General Properties

  • WAN Properties

  • Port Properties

  • Interface Advanced Properties

  • Interface Service Options

  • Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

  • Interface Protocol

    • For information about configuring dynamic routing protocols (BGP, RIP, OSPF, OSPFv3) in the virtual router and on the interfaces, see OSPF Protocol Configuration Overview.

    • For information about configuring multicast routing protocols (PIM-SIM, IGMP, IGMP-Proxy) and multicast route entries, see Multicast Route Overview.

  • Interface Secondary IP

  • Interface Monitoring

  • Generic Routing Encapsulation

  • Interface Network Address Translation

For more information about interfaces on security devices, see the “ Fundamentals” volume in the Concepts & Examples ScreenOS Reference Guide.
