CloudConnexa Internet Gateway

What is it?

CloudConnexa does not provide direct egress of Internet traffic. Any traffic to the Internet that enters WPC needs to exit out of a customer’s Network. A Network can be configured as an exit point for Internet traffic by turning the Internet Gateway setting ON.

  • A Network configured to act as Internet Gateway receives traffic destined to the Internet from other Networks, Hosts, and Users in the WPC

  • Multiple different Networks can be configured as Internet Gateway for one WPC

  • Internet access for Networks, Hosts, and Users need Internet Gateway set to Split-Tunnel OFF

  • A Network that is not itself acting as Internet Gateway can be set to Split-Tunnel OFF

  • If multiple Networks are configured with Internet Gateway, internet traffic for Networks, Hosts, and Users within User Groups set to Split-Tunnel OFF, gets automatically routed to the geographically nearest Internet Gateway Network based on the Region to which the User’s, Host’s, or Network’s WPC client/Connector is connected

Who should use this?

An Administrator can configure a Network to act as Internet Gateway.

Why should I use this?

It should be used to provide one or more exit points for public traffic that enters the WPC.

Show me how to configure it?

When should I make use of this?

A Network might serve as Internet Gateway in order to force all Internet traffic to pass through Unified Threat Management (UTM) equipment hosted in that Network or to act as an internet gateway such that the public IP address of the Internet Gateway Network’s Connector(s) can be used to white list access to SaaS applications.
