Routing

Static routes are designed for traffic that should not pass through the default gateway. It can also be used to add some routes to link units to other networks in your company.

Go to the "Routing" tab on the "Preferences" page. If static routes are required, they can be added to the routing table using the "ip route add" command. 

To add a static route to a host address, in other words to a single IP address, use a command:  ip route add 10.8.1.123 via 10.8.1.1

To add a static route to a network, in other words to an IP address representing a range of IP addresses, use the following command:  ip route add 192.168.1.0/24 via 192.168.0.115
Where 192.168.1.0 is the IP address of the destination network in dotted-decimal notation and /24 is the network prefix. The network prefix is the number of enabled bits in the subnet mask.
Where 192.168.0.115 is the address of the gateway, usually this is a router connecting two networks. 

Restart the unit for the changes to take effect. Each time the system starts, the specified commands apply. The log will show the set up new routes or errors if it occurs.




Traceroute tool

Traceroute are network diagnostic tool for displaying possible routes (paths) and measuring transit delays of packets across an network. 

Enter the desired IP address in the "Address" field and click the "Start" button. If data receives a long time, then click "Refresh" to see current data. If you re-press the "Start", then the process of the traceroute restarts again.
