  • Multiple port-forwarding gateways with identical or overlapping IP ranges
    Posted: 04-11-2017, 1:09 PM

    I've been reviewing the documentation on firewalls and the port-forwarding gateway chapter, but my scenario isn't fully documented as far as I can tell.

    I have an environment where there are several more or less isolated networks. Clients on each isolated network can connect to the outside world via a gateway, which I'm lead to belive acts as a NAT. I do not manage the devices directly.

    From the documentation, I'm fairly sure I'll be able to configure the firewall configuration for clients behind one gateway, but what if I have several of those?

    Will the CommServe be smart enough to know which client belongs to which gateway based on the source IP of the incoming connection from each individual gateway? I may have up to one hundred gateways.

    Also, each isolated network behind a gateway will probably have the same IP address range, typically a private network.

    How could I define the individual clients in such a scenario? Just set them with a dummy hostname or a hostname pointing to each gateway?

    Is such a configuration even possible?
