Manual network routes

Manual routes are used in scenarios where you have multiple subnets on the LANLocal area network segment, or you want to specify certain subnet traffic to use a specific Remote LAN, or WANWide Area Network, link. This feature can be configured by going to the Advanced tab on the Exinda SD-WANSoftware-Defined Wide Area Network Management Interface and clicking Add next to the Manual Network Routes section:

Manual Network Routes, Simple

This generates a pop-up window where the information specifying a manual route rule can be entered. The Type field specifies Simple Route or Advanced Route. Device Type identifies the interface/tunnel type for the traffic we are setting the route for. As an example, WAN or LAN subnets or VLL if the traffic is destined for a VLL tunnel. The Destination field specifies the destination IPInternet protocol address subnet to which the packets are routed to. This can be accomplished either through a device route or through a VLL route, based on the option chosen previously.

Choosing the Advanced Route as the Type exposes additional configuration options to identify the traffic including Source IP/Subnet, DSCPDifferentiated Services Code Point, Protocol, Source Ports, and Destination Ports. You can also modify the Priority and the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTUMaximum Transmission Unit) size of the traffic.

The failover mode is used to configure the failover action in case of primary interface failure. It has 2 modes: “sticky mode” and “available mode”. In case of a primary interface failure, the sticky mode transfers the traffic on to the secondary interface, and when the primary line comes back up, transfers the traffic back to the primary interface. With the “available mode”, after the primary interface recovers, the traffic that failed- over earlier continues to use the failover interface. The newer sessions is routed over the primary interface as usual.
