Setup Network Edge Gateway V-Cloud
Posted by Joseph Quintero on 02 April 2014 11:20 AM

1. Click on a VDC.
2. Click an Organization for example "vigilant-client_servers"
3. Click the administration tab. You should now see 2 items listed. Vigilant-Client_servers and Vigilant-Client-ServersT2
4. Our organization is in the T1 so we will click on that.
5. From here you can setup your own network or use an existing if the networks are shared with this organization.
A) You can add a new network or edge gateway. Just click on the + sign to configure a new edge gateway.
First Option:
Compact, Full and Full-4 configurations provide identical security functions. The Full and Full-4 configurations provide better performance and capacity. The compact configuration uses less memory and compute resources.
B) Select a external network in our case Carl want this on the 250 subnet so we selected "pnap.107.wan.
C) Name this beast and Finish the wizard.
6. The next step if this is on a different internal subnet would be to add a Org VDC Networks {TAB}. Ours is called vtg-client and its setup to be "Routed".
I had issues here and I think Carl said he had to reboot vcenter to get this to work correctly.
7. Once this is created we can now right click the edge gateway and select "Edge Gateway Services".
8. The next step would be Configuring the edge gateway firewall. Go back to your edge gatway {TAB} right click it and select "edge gateway services". Enabled the firewall and open ports as needed.
9. Now its time to go back into the NAT {TAB} and and create the SNAT this is so data gets route. In my case since I want my internal range to be 192.168.5.X I added a SNAT
original (Internal) source IP/Range IP
translate IP would be <- you will not be able to browse the web on the server until this is setup.
10. Now you can do the simple stuff and setup NAT rules

Managing Allocated IPs or Add more IPs to a specific edge gateway :
1. Click Manage and Monitor, then click Organization vDCs in the left pane.
2. Double-click your organization VDC name to open it.
3. Click the Edge Gateways tab, right-click the Edge gateway name, and select Properties.
4. Click the Sub-Allocate IP Pools tab.
5. Select an external network in the External Networks box.
The IP Pool box displays the range of IP addresses for the network.
6. In the Sub-Allocate this selected pool into other static IP pools box, type a single IP address or a range of IP addresses that is within the external network's IP range, then click Add.
7. Click OK.
