Two management port in NGF

management port ngf barracuda

Best Answer Michael Zoller, 03 November 2016 - 08:43 AM

For an unused port (this will create a new management IP address / network): 

 

Go to Configuration Tree > Networking and In the IP Configuration menu add an Additional IPv4 Address. Set the Management IP to yes. Activate the network configuration. This will create a box level IP address and direct attached route for that network.

 

If the port is already in use you must delete the direct attached network for that port first.

 

Alternatively:

You can reach the management IP address from any port on the NGF as management connections use the host, not the forwarding firewall service, as long as the client is not blocked by the Management ACL.

So if you have the MIP 192.168.200.200 on port P1 and you are connected with your laptop on P3 (with let's say a 10.0.0.X IP address) you can connect to 192.168.200.200 with NextGen Admin from your laptop. This is if P3 is configured correctly (direct attached route + virtual server IP address)

 

Hope this helped!

Yes, ‚Äčin the Network properties of the box you can add additional local IPs and turn on Management, but you will need to tie it to an interface.
