Create an overlay network

The last step in deploying the Airwall secure network is to create an overlay. An overlay is a fabric of secured communications channels that allow trusted devices to communicate securely with each other. Overlays are controlled by Airwall Edge Services and administered by the Conductor.

To create an overlay network:
  1. Go to Overlays and click New overlay network.
  2. Enter a name and description (optional) for the overlay network.
  3. Select Save.
  4. Select the overlay you added and on the Devices tab, click the button to the right of Add devices.
  5. In the Add Devices dialog, select each device or device group that you want to add to the overlay network and click Add Devices.
  6. In the People section on the right side of the Devices tab, click Update to assign managers or members of the overlay network.
  7. Optional: Select the VLAN tagged traffic tab and select the appropriate options if you want to allow VLAN tagged or untagged traffic.
Basic overlay network creation is now complete. For more information, see the following sections:
