Associate a VLAN to a Gateway Appliance

Overview

VLAN association is the process of linking an eligible VLAN to a Network Gateway so that it may be routed to the Gateway Appliance in the future. The process of association does not automatically route a VLAN to a Gateway Appliance; the VLAN continues to use front-end and back-end customer routers until the VLAN is manually routed to the Gateway. VLANs may be associated to one Gateway at a time and must not have a firewall in order to be considered eligible for association. Follow the steps below to associate a VLAN to a Network Gateway.

Associate a VLAN

  1. Access the Gateway Appliance Details screen in the Customer Portal. Refer to Access the Gateway Appliance Details Screen.
  2. Select the desired VLAN from the Associate a VLAN drop down list.
  3. Click the Associate button to associate the VLAN.

What Happens Next

After associating a VLAN to the Gateway Appliance, it will appear in the Associated VLANS section of the Gateway Appliance Details screen. From this section, the VLAN may be routed to the Gateway or it may be disassociated from the Gateway. Additional eligible VLANs may be associated to a Gateway Appliance at any time by repeating the steps above.
