Configuring inter-VDOM routing

By default, for two virtual domains to communicate it must be through externally connected physical interfaces. Inter-VDOM routing creates a link with two ends that act as virtual interfaces, internally connecting the two virtual domains.

Before configuring inter-VDOM routing:

  • You must have at least two virtual domains configured.
  • The virtual domains must all be in NAT mode.
  • Each virtual domain to be linked must have at least one interface or subinterface assigned to it.
To create a VDOM link:
  1. Go to the device database. See Displaying the device database.
  2. In the device database, go to System > Interface.
  3. Click Create New > VDOM Link. The New VDOM Link pane opens.

  4. Complete the options, and click OK to save your settings.
