Dynamic routing updates

To receive dynamic routing updates and advertise the network, you need to allow access to dynamic routing from the WAN zone from Administration > Device access.

Dynamic routing

By default, dynamic routing is disabled for all zones. An example of a dynamic routing scenario is as follows:

Local Service ACL configuration (XG1):

Local Service ACL configuration (XG2):

In the Local service ACL configuration, Dynamic Routing is enabled for the WAN zone of XG1 and is disabled for the WAN zone of XG2.

Routing Information Protocol (RIP) updates are configured to be sent via the WAN zones of both firewalls. Since only the XG1 has dynamic routing enabled for the WAN zone, only XG1 receives the RIP updates coming from XG2. The RIP updates that XG1 sends to XG2 are dropped, since XG2 has dynamic routing disabled for the WAN zone.

In the routing table, XG1 shows the networks advertised by XG2 but XG2 doesn't show the networks advertised by XG1.
