“Device types” in Mushroom Networks GUI and its configuration

Mushroom Device Types:

1) Wan Interfaces: These are the wired wan interfaces that you connect to the Mushroom device. These interfaces are labeled as WAN 1, WAN 2 (RJ-45).

To route your traffic to or from the interface, you might have add a route from the manual network routes sections as shown int examples section below.

2) Wireless Interfaces: This is the interface representing the connection made through the WiFi options present on your device. Wireless feature can be implemented in two modes: 1) Access Point 2) Wireless WAN (DHCP and Static). The interface should be configured as bridge when used as an access point and as wireless when it is acting as wireless wan.

3) Tunnel Interfaces: These are the virtual interfaces that are created when you setup a tunnel. Examples include VLL, VoIP-Armor etc.

To route your traffic to or from the interface, you might have add a route from the manual network routes sections as shown in the example section below.

4) Cellular Interfaces: These are the cellular interfaces that you connect to the Mushroom devices. These are connected to be on the WAN side of the device. Ex: External Modems, Internal SIM cards.

To route your traffic to or from the interface, you might have add a route from the manual network routes sections as shown in the examples below. 

5) Bridge Interfaces: The LAN interfaces that present on the Mushroom device are usually bridged. To route your traffic to or from the interface, you might have add a route from the manual network routes sections,

Some examples of configuring manual routes using device types:

The following examples can be used to route traffic destined to 192.168.99.0/24 on to specific device types of the Mushroom device.

  • Routing traffic destined to 192.168.1.0/24 on to the LAN side with device type as bridge as shown below or alternatively you can also specific LAN interface with a specific device index.

  • Routing traffic destined to 192.168.99.0/24 on to Wan 2.

  • Note: You can find the device indices from the under the relevant interface section of the HOME tab.

  • Routing traffic destined to 192.168.99.0/24 on to the vll tunnel named test_tunnel. For VLL, the device index would be the name of the VLL tunnel. You can find it under the HOME tab or under the VLL tab, under username (if it is a VoIP armor tunnel).

         

  • Also if you want to route your traffic depending on a source subnet, then you’d need to add an ‘advanced’ manual network route. The following rule sends all the traffic from source 192.168.1.0/24 on to WAN 1 to exit the Mushroom device.

          

  • The following rule sends all the incoming traffic from source 192.168.99.0/24 on to the bridge (LAN/Wireless) interface. 

         

Note: All the above examples are with reference to ‘simple’ or ‘advanced’ manual network routes to explain the device type usage. You can also use the device types accordingly in any other sections like QoS, Interface group filters, firewall etc, according to your application.
