You can see the IPv4 and IPv6 routes configured on your Firebox, and filter the list of routes by the route type, interface, and destination. For both IPv4 and IPv6 routes, the available route types include static, dynamic, connected, and VPN.

You can view the first 100 routes from the Routes page. To view more than 100 routes, download the support.tgz file and go to the support\networking\routes.txt file. For more information about the support.tgz file, go to Download a Diagnostic Log Message File in Fireware Web UI.

For each route, the Routes table includes this information:


The network that the route was created for.


The interface associated with the route.


The gateway that the network uses.


The flags set for each route.


The metric set for this route in the routing table. In Fireware v12.9 or higher, the Distance setting replaces the Metric setting.

To see the routes on your Firebox, from Fireware Web UI:

  1. Select System Status > Routes.
    The Routes page appears.
