Outbound policy management in InControl2 allows you to upload a configuration file saved from a device, view or optionally change the rules’ schedule, and then apply these policies to one, or multiple devices.
To configure the Outbound Policies:
Configure the outbound policies on the web admin interface of one of your Peplink routers.
When applying rules to sets of devices only WAN connections with matching names (eg WAN 1) will be active.
For example, to apply a rule that forces certain traffic to “WAN 1”, each selected device also needs a WAN connection called “WAN 1”.
For devices without a “WAN 1” the rule will be excluded.
The same logic applies to policies applied to PepVPN profiles.
Download the configuration file from the router containing the Outbound Policies that you want to apply to other Peplink routers in your organization.
In the correct InControl2 organization select: Group settings > Network settings > Outbound Policy.
Tick the box to Manage the Outbound policies on Balance and Max devices.
Click the “Import Rule Set from Configuration File” button.
A window will pop up showing all the Outbound policies available in that configuration file.
This will create a new Outbound Policies Rule Set when saved.
Before saving select the options to enable or disable individual outbound policies.
Select if the rule set should be applied to All Balance and Max devices or a selection of your devices using ‘tags’.
After being saved the rule set will be available from the main Outbound Policy section in InControl2.
This feature is available in InControl since version 2.5.1
