Add a unicast route

You can configure XG Firewall to forward unicast traffic.

To add a unicast route, do as follows:

  1. Go to Routing > Static routing.
  2. Click Add under IPv4 unicast route or IPv6 unicast route.
  3. Enter the unicast route details.
    OptionDescription

    Destination IP/netmask

    Specify the destination IP address and subnet mask.

    Gateway

    Specify the destination gateway address.

    Interface

    Select the XG Firewall interface through which traffic will leave.

    Distance

    Specify the distance. Routes with lower numbers have higher precedence. Example: XG Firewall will initially try and send traffic over a route with a distance of 1, rather than a distance of 5.

    Note When the gateway and interface addresses aren't on the same network, XG Firewall can't route the traffic, so it stores the route. When you change the interface address so that it is on the same network as the gateway, XG Firewall can send traffic over that route.
