Defining Hosts for a Site

  • Updated

You can define static hosts which you can then use in security rules and policies.

This definition can also be used to account for DHCP Reservation, where a static IP is assigned as part of the DHCP flow based on the client's MAC address.

Translated IP shows the IP address that the PoP translates for the internal host IP address. When Static Range Translation (Administration > System Settings) is enabled for the account, you can define the translated IP range in the Networks screen.

To add a host to a site:

  1. From the navigation menu, click Network > Sites and select the site.

  2. From the navigation menu, click Site Settings > Hosts.

  3. Click New. The Add Host panel opens.

  4. Enter these settings for the host:

    • Name

    • IP Address

    • (Optional) MAC address

  5. Click Apply. The New Host panel closes and the host is added to the screen.

  6. Click Save. The host is added to the site.

Editing a Host

Use the Edit Host panel to edit the settings for a host.

To edit a host:

  1. From the navigation menu, click Network > Sites and select the site.

  2. From the navigation menu, click Site Settings > Hosts.

  3. In the Name column, click the host.

    The Edit Host panel opens.

  4. Edit the settings for the host.

  5. Click Apply. The Edit Host panel closes.

  6. Click Save. The changes to the host are saved.

Deleting a Host

Before you can delete a host, make sure that it isn't used somewhere else in the Cato Management Application, such as groups or firewall rules.

To delete a host:

  1. From the navigation menu, click Network > Sites and select the site.

  2. From the navigation menu, click Site Settings > Hosts.

  3. From the host, click the Delete icon Delete.png.

    The host is removed from the site.

  4. Click Save. The host is deleted.
