Adding static routes to the BIG-IP system

Before you adding a static route, you need to know the IP address, pool name, or VLAN name through which the packets will travel to reach the defined destination address.
The BIG-IP system uses a static route to determine the path to use to ensure that packets reach their destination address.
  1. On the Main tab, click Network > Routes.
  2. Click Add. The New Route screen opens.
  3. From the Type list, select Route.
  4. From the Type list, select Default IPv4 Gateway.
  5. From the Route Domain ID list, select a route domain ID.
  6. In the Destination field, type either the destination IP address for the route, or IP address 0.0.0.0 for the default route. This address can represent either a host or a network. Also, if you are using the route domains and the relevant route domain is the partition default route domain, you do not need to append a route domain ID to this address.
  7. In the Netmask field, type the network mask for the destination IP address.
  8. From the Resource list, select Use Gateway. The gateway represents a next-hop or last-hop address in the route.
  9. For the Gateway Address setting, select IP Address and type an IP address.
  10. For the Gateway Address setting, select IPv6 Link-Local Address and type an IP address. The system prepends the typed entry with the required string FE80:.
  11. From the Resource list, selectUse Pool. A pool represents a pool of routers through which the packets flow to reach the specified destination.
  12. From the Pool list, select a pool name.
  13. From the Pool list, select the default gateway pool.
  14. From the Resource list, select Use VLAN/Tunnel. A VLAN represents the VLAN through which the packets flow to reach the specified destination.
  15. From the VLAN/Tunnel list, select a VLAN name.
  16. From the Resource list, selectReject.
  17. At the bottom of the screen, click Finished.
Packets targeted for the destination address specified in the route can reach that destination.

Static route management on the BIG-IP system

Part of managing routing on a BIG-IP system is to add static routes for destinations that are not located on the directly-connected network. If you are using the route domains feature, you can specify a route domain ID as part of each IP address that you include in a static route entry.
