    NSX Manager opens in the current browser window.

  2. Select Routing from the navigation panel.
  3. Select the tier-0 router.
  4. From the Configuration tab, add a new logical router port.
  5. Type a name for the port, such as uplink.
  6. Select the Uplink type.
  7. Select the appropriate Transport Node labeled like PublicCloudGatewayxxxxx
  8. Select the overlay logical switch with a name like DefaultSwitch-Overlay-<vpc-name>.
  9. Select an IP address from the DHCP range for this logical switch.


A new uplink port is added for the tier-0 router.
