Creating static routes for the inline network configuration
You must use static routes if you plan to connect Symantec Web Gateway in the inline network configuration. You must configure a static route to each internal subnet beyond the main switch. Whenever you add an additional subnet, you must add a static route to Symantec Web Gateway. If you do not add a static route when you add a subnet, users on that subnet may see the following error message: "Page not found."
You do not have to configure static routes in the Web GUI if you deploy Symantec Web Gateway in the port span/tap network configuration. Symantec Web Gateway only requires static routes for the inline network configurations.
A static route is a path to an internal subnet through an intermediate switch. In the inline network configuration, you connect the LAN port on Symantec Web Gateway to a main switch. If that switch connects to another subnet, you must configure a static route for each subnet beyond the switch that is connected to Symantec Web Gateway.
To create static routes for the inline network configuration
In the Web GUI, click Administration > Configuration > Network.
Click Add a Static Route.
In Destination, type the IP address of the subnet.
For example, if computers on the network have IP addresses in the range 10.10.20.0 to 10.10.20.255, type 10.10.20.0.
In Netmask, type the netmask for the subnet.
For example, if you specified a destination of 10.10.20.0, type 255.255.255.0.
In Gateway, type the IP address of the router or switch.
The gateway is the IP address of the router, such as 10.10.20.100.
Add additional static routes for each internal subnet.
