Networks

Network settings define how Firebox interfaces connect to internal and external networks. The Networks section has a tile for each configured network.

Each network has one or more associated interfaces. For a wireless Firebox, an internal or guest network can also include a wireless SSID.

The tile for each configured network shows this information:

  • IP Address — The network IP address or address configuration type
  • Zone — The network zone (External, Internal, or Guest)
  • Wireless SSID — The wireless SSID associated with the network, if wireless is enabled
  • Associated Interfaces — The interfaces associated with the network

For information about how to add and edit networks, see:

Interfaces

Interfaces correspond to the physical interfaces on the Firebox. The Interfaces section of the Network page has a tile for each Firebox interface.

The interface icon color indicates whether the interface is associated with a network.

Blue interface icon Interface is associated with a network
Interface is not associated with a network

To see networks an interface is associated with, point to View Networks below the interface icon. Each associated network is a standalone, bridged, or VLAN network.
