How can I add and use LAN routes?

The machine networks are becoming more and more complex and segmented. The remote maintenance has so far been limited to only one network segment at the LAN interface. The ExtendedRouting function now offers the possibility to reach different networks via additional routers that are connected to the LAN interface. I.e. if there‘s already a Managed Switch with routing function in the facility, its network segments can be entered in the mbNET and the remote maintenance therefore knows which network segment can be reached over which Managed Switch/Router.
This document describes, HowTo add and use LAN routes in rsp.mbCONNECT24 (V2) for a mbNET (from version V3.7.0).


The network configuration is in this example as follows:

1. To add new LAN routes, you have to navigate to „Administration“ and click on the symbol at
LAN“:

2. Please navigate to the section „Routes“ at the LAN settings:

3. Please add a new route with the  symbol:

As „Network“ you have to configure the network address range in CIDR format, which you want to reach.
Under „Gateway“ you have to configure the IP address of the component, which knows the route in the other network segment and is able to forward this route (e.g. a Firewall or a Managed Switch / Router).
Please confirm your settings with „Save“.

 

After downloading the configuration to the device, you are able to reach these networks after you established a VPN connection to the mbNET.
