Configuring Source Routing (NSM Procedure)

You can configure source routing to specify IP addresses of the devices along the path, that you want an IP packet to take on its way to its destination.

To configure source routing 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 Source Routing.
  6. Enter the parameters as specified in Table 44.
  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.
