seamless bypass

Local bypass allows you to separate traffic (split tunnel) going through your Airwall Gateway, where you selectively encrypt and tunnel some traffic, while allowing other traffic to pass through the Airwall Gateway unchanged. This ability also allows protected devices to securely communicate with devices or network locations that are not protected by Airwall Edge Services, such as software update servers on the Internet.

Configuring an Airwall Gateway for local bypass permits traffic between the secure overlay network and an insecure underlay network, where the Airwall Gateway acts similarly to an SNAT (Source Network Address Translation) gateway. Connections initiated from the underlay network are still blocked, but connections initiated from a protected device to a permitted bypass destination are allowed.
