Firebox WAN Settings

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes

In the network settings for a cloud-managed Firebox you can configure two types of WAN settings, Global WAN and SD-WAN.

Global WAN and SD-WAN settings control how the Firebox routes traffic between networks.

Global WAN

In the Global WAN settings, you configure a Multi-WAN action that controls how the Firebox routes outbound traffic when multiple external networks are configured. When you add a second external network, Global WAN is automatically configured with the Failover multi-WAN action.

Global WAN settings are visible only when the Firebox has two or more external networks.

For information about how to configure Global WAN settings, see Configure Global WAN Settings.


Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a software-based routing solution that you can use to distribute traffic between networks or to a specific network, based on firewall policies. In the SD-WAN settings, you can configure an SD-WAN action. You can then enable the SD-WAN action in a firewall policy and select the SD-WAN action.

For information about how to configure SD-WAN settings, and to enable SD-WAN in a firewall policy, see Configure SD-WAN.
