Edge Gateway can act as router, firewall, NAT, DHCP, VPN (site-to-site) and load balancer. The load balancer will be configured in the following steps (covering most of the functionalities of Edge Gateway).
Edge Gateway must be added to the customer’s VHE and IP addresses and must be properly assigned by BENESTRA engineers. The following two pictures show how to check this in vCloud Director.
2. Edge Gateway must have the correct IP addresses and subnets assigned. The IP Settings and IP Pools must be configured before proceeding with the next steps.
Connecting Edge Gateway to VDC network
1. The new network can be added and connected to Edge Gateway as shown in the following pictures:
2. The next step (internal interface of Edge Gateway) of the network setup can now be done
3. After the Edge Gateway is preconfigured, network configuration of the VMs to be connected to the Edge Gateway can be done.
Connecting vApps/VMs to Edge Gateway
1. The internal network can be created using App Edge
2. All the VMs which are to be connected to load balancer mustbe connected to the internal network
3.The internal network must be connected to Edge Gateway (can only be done when the whole vApp is powered off)
4. The VMs network diagram should look as follows:
