Konnect Hub Settings

  • Expand the Konnect Hub Settings section.

  • Select WAN Interface from the dropdown menu.

  • Enter the TCP/UDP Listen Port number.

  • Expand the NAT Table section to view a summary of the NONAT, SNAT & NETMAP specifications in use, constructed from data from the Hub Managed Network definitions. This information is taken from the Access Networks screen of the Configuration Wizard.

NAT Table

  • The NAT Table shows the following information:

    • Edge Device Name

    • WAN Interface

    • Access Network

    • NAT Type

    • NAT To

    • Actions

      • Change Device Priority

  • This is a Read only table. The user can change the order of the entries by clicking and dragging the image-20240411-114735.png icon. The user cannot do any other operation in this table.

  • Expand the Inbound NAT/Route Table section to view the following information:

    • Edge Device Name

    • Destination IP Address (IP:Port)

    • DNAT Address and Port (IP:Port)

Inbound NAT/Route Table

  • This is also a Read only table. The user can only view the information presented. They cannot modify any value.

Configuration - Access Networks

For remote devices to make use of the Konnect Hub service, the user should define ‘Hub Managed Networks’ in the Konnect Hub Server. Each ‘Hub Managed Network’ maps a remote access network (on a client EdgeServer) to this Konnect Hub server.

This process is done in the Access Networks screen of the Configuration Wizard.

Access Networks

  • A ‘Hub Managed Network’ is indicated by the symbol image-20240412-103218.png.

    • Click the Pencil icon to edit an existing Hub Managed Network.

    • Click the Delete icon to delete a Hub Managed Network.

  • Click Add Hub Managed Routed Network button to create a new Hub Managed Network.

Note: The users need Hub Enterprise License to create new Hub Managed Networks. The users with Hub Standard License cannot create new Hub Managed Networks and will have only the Default Hub Access Network available.

  • The Add Hub Managed Routed Network dialog box opens.

image-20240404-084951-20240412-104102.png

Add New Hub Managed Routed Network

  • Enter a name for the network in the Network Alias field.

  • Enter the name of the client EdgeServer for this network in the Edge Device Name field.

  • In the Edge Device Subnet field, enter the subnet of the access network on the client EdgeServer for this network that will be mapped to this Hub Managed Network.

  • The NAT Type field allows the user to choose between NONAT, SNAT & NETMAP.

    • If the NAT Type is SNAT or NETMAP, an additional field ‘Map To’ will be available. This is where the remote subnet will be mapped to in the Konnect Hub server.

      • For SNAT, the ‘Map To’ field can be a CIDR subnet, or just an IP

      • For NETMAP, the ‘Map To’ field must be a CIDR subnet, with the same prefix length as that of the ‘Edge Device Subnet’ field.

  • For ‘NAT Type’ of ‘SNAT’ and ‘NETMAP’, an additional ‘Inbound NAT/Route Table’ section will be available. This is where the user can define inbound rules.

Inbound NAT / Route Table

  • Click + New Entry button to create a new entry.

image-20240423-092703.png

Create New Inbound Rule

  • Enter the Destination Address & Port (which must be within the ‘Map To’ specified). This specifies the ‘IP:Port’ combination that will be mapped.

  • Enter the DNAT Address & Port (which must be within the ‘Edge Device Subnet’ specified). This specifies the target ‘IP:Port’ combination to which such connections will be DNAT-ed.

  • When the NAT Type is selected as SNAT, the user must enter both the Destination Address & Port and DNAT Address & Port.

  • When the NAT Type is selected as NETMAP, the user can only specify the Destination Address & Port. The system will automatically compute the ‘DNAT Address & Port’.

  • Click the Green tick icon to save the entry.

  • Actions:

    • Edit - Click the Pencil icon to edit the entries.

    • Delete - Click the Delete icon to delete any entry.

  • A similar screen is presented when the user edits any existing Hub Managed Network.
