Static route is a form of routing that occurs when a router uses a manually-configured routing entry, rather than information from dynamic routing traffic. In some scenarios, static routes are manually configured by a network administrator by adding routing entries into a routing table. This example illustrates how to configure static route on Nebula.

Topology


Configurations

Go to Configure > Firewall > Routing, and click “Add” button in static route section.


Configure the required information for a static route.

Configure > Firewall > Routing: Static Route


Subnet: Enter an IP subnet mask. The route applies to all IP addresses in the subnet.

Next Hop Type: Select IP Address or Interface to specify if you want to send all traffic to the gateway or interface.

Next Hop: Enter the IP address of the next-hop gateway.

Metric: Metric represents the “cost” of transmission for routing purposes. IP routing uses hop count as the measurement of cost, with a minimum of 1 for directly connected networks. Enter a number that approximates the cost for this link. The number need not be precise, but it must be 0 – 127. In practice, 2 or 3 is usually a good number.

In this scenario, we have router 192.168.10.253 in lan1 for subnet 192.168.99.0/24 routing. When the traffic is routed to the final destination 192.168.99.0/24, it will be routed to router 192.168.10.253

Click “Save” to commit settings to Nebula



Verification

Open Windows command prompt, and PING to 192.168.99.1, traffic will be routed to 192.168.10.253.
