Default gateways

Network Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

The server supports multiple default gateways for routing IP traffic. When connected to multiple IP networks, add a default gateway for each network to which the server is connected. This configuration allows the server to direct traffic through the appropriate default gateway by matching source IP addresses specified in outgoing packets with the gateway on the same subnet.

With multiple default gateways, the server routes IP traffic logically, reducing the need to specify static routes for every network that connects with a particular server.
