Source - Netmask

Select the source network's subnet mask.

Destination

Specify the destination network. This can be either of the following:

Service

Specify the service used to send packets (service routing). This can be either of the following:

  • ANY. This route applies to packets sent using any service.
  • A specific service or network service object.

Note: When defining a static route for a specific service, the Source and Destination fields must be set to ANY.

Next Hop IP

Specify the next hop to which packets should be sent. This can be any of the following:

  • Specified IP. Traffic matching this static route's criteria will be routed to a specific gateway. Type the IP address of the desired gateway (next hop router) in the field provided.
  • WAN (Internet). Traffic matching this static route's criteria will be routed to the Internet connection on the WAN1 interface.
  • WAN2 (Internet). Traffic matching this static route's criteria will be routed to the Internet connection on the WAN2 interface.

Metric

Type the static route's metric.

When a packet matches multiple static routes' criteria, the gateway sends the packet to the matching route with the lowest metric.

The default value is 10.
