Routing can be configured in several tabs: IPv6 settings can only be accessed if IPv6 is enabled in the firewall’s configuration.

  • IPv4/IPv6 static routes: enables the definition of static routes. Static routing represents a set of rules defined by the administrator as well as a default route.
  • IPv4/IPv6 dynamic routing: makes it possible to configure dynamic routing protocols (RIP, OSPF, BGP) in the Bird engine, to allow the firewall to learn routes managed by other devices.
  • IPv4/IPv6 return routes: when several gateways are used for load balancing, this tab makes it possible to define the gateway through which return packets will need to go in order to guarantee the consistency of connections.

These segments operate simultaneously, static routing having priority over all the rest during the transmission of a packet over the network.
