Product concerned: SNS 2 and higher versions

Last update: July 2016

Ever since version 2 of the firmware, Stormshield Network firewalls have been enriched with two new features relating to the routing mechanism: router objects and return routes.

These features make the configuration of routing and load balancing much simpler and more intuitive, thereby allowing sophisticated architectures to be set up.

This technical note sets out two examples of how these features are implemented, in order to spread out traffic over several firewalls, optimizing as such performance and bandwidth use.
