With Mobility Optimized Networking, you have the option to control which traffic is routed locally using the cloud gateway versus traffic that goes out through the source gateway. Policy routes define which traffic is routed through the source gateway. All other traffic is routed through the cloud gateway.

  2. In the Network Extension screen, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Click Policy Routes.
    A new screen appears with options to Add or Remove networks.
  4. Using the pull-down menu, select a destination site.
  5. In the Network field, for which you want traffic routed through the source gate, click Add.

    By default, Redirect to Peer is selected.
