Traffic Policies
« on: March 16, 2014, 02:13:34 PM »
Traffic policies are optional in a standard point to point network, but recommended to ensure only the intended traffic gets optimized.

In a point to multipoint network, when some remote sites don't have Wanos devices, a Traffic Policy is required to by-pass these sites. For example in the following network, only one remote device is placed in the network at one site. Since there are multiple remote sites rule #98 and #99 are created:

After using the devices in a lab, I wanted to test in production.  I placed the Edge Device at my colo space last night.  All seems fine - no changes whatsoever.

This morning when I inserted the Core device between my LAN and my router, I lost all traffic to the Internet except those specifically bypassed (I could ping for example, but not browse).  I ended up pulling the device until I could figure out what I was doing wrong.  I really only need to use the devices going from 192.168.2.0/24 and 192.168.100.0/24.  No other traffic needs caching at all.

I started with the base set of rules - couldn't pass traffic.  I then added rules to bypass traffic originating from 192.168.2.0/24 going to 0.0.0.0/0 on TCP and then another on UDP - no change.  Here is what is currently failing:

Hi,

Ok, the traffic policy should work as intended if one more line is added:

Rule #99 as in this image:


Basically the only thing needed is to replace 172.16.100.0/24 with 192.168.100.0/24
