Set an Overlay to Automatically Manage Relay Rules

You can easily manage the relay rules for an overlay by setting it to automatically create relay rules that allow the trust relationships in the overlay.

Supported Versions
Conductor 2.2.10 and later
Required Roles
System administrators

Network administrators with permissions to the overlay

Note: You must first set up an Airwall Relay before you can enable automatic relay rules.

You can also configure Airwall Relay rules manually. See Configure Airwall Relay rules.

  1. Open the overlay you want to automatically manage your relay rules.
  2. Under Info on the right sidebar, select Edit Settings.
  3. On the General tab, enable the Manage a relay rule based on this overlay network's configuration option.
  4. Choose the Airwall Relays or Airwall Relay groups that you want this overlay to use.
  5. Select Save.
The overlay creates relay rules that allow communication between all Airwall Edge Services in the overlay. Note that you still need to set up device to device trust for them to communicate.
Note: Airwall Edge Services try to connect directly first, and only use the relay if they cannot connect directly.
Note: Managed relay rules do not normally display on the Airwalls page. If you want to see them, you can go to Airwalls > Airwall relay rules and at the bottom right, check Display system relay rules.
