How do I disable the passthrough card/hardware bridge on a ProxySG appliance?

<< Back to Knowledge Search



The Passthru cards in the latest ProxySG models are programmable and can be managed in SGOS.

To disable the bridge:
  1. In the Management Console, select Configuration > Network > Adapters > Bridges.
  2. In the Bridge Name section, select the bridge you want to configure.
  3. Click Edit. The Edit Bridge dialog displays.
  4. Select Disabled to disable the bridge. This will make the interface function as a normal NIC card.
Additional Information about bridge mode options*:
  • Disabled - Disables the bridge and allows the adapter ports to be reused as NICs or as part of another bridge.
  • Fail Open - If the ProxySG appliance fails, all traffic passes through the bridge so clients can still receive data.
  • Fail Closed - If the ProxySG appliance fails, all traffic is blocked and service is interrupted.

*This feature is only available for programmable bridge cards.
