Device Configuration : Configure : System Services : RED
This chapter describes how to configure RED. RED is short for Remote Ethernet Device and is a means to connect remote branch offices and the like to your main office as if the branch office is part of your local network.
System > System Services > RED
The setup consists of Sophos Firewall OS in your main office and a Remote Ethernet Device (RED) in your remote office. Establishing a connection between the two is utmost easy as the RED appliance itself does not need to be configured at all. As soon as the RED appliance is connected to Sophos Firewall OS it behaves like any other Ethernet device on Sophos Firewall OS. All traffic of your branch office is safely routed via Sophos Firewall OS which means that your branch office is as secure as your local network.
The page shows the RED status. It is deactivated by default.
Disable RED
Disabling RED will not cause the deletion of the REDs. If you disable the RED functionality, RED devices will be deactivated and lose their connection. If you re-enable the RED functionality, the REDs will be activated again. To disable RED, click the toggle switch on the RED page and confirm by clicking the Confirm removal of RED configuration button.
