Cloud Router enables you to dynamically exchange routes between networks.
The list of routers is located inside the project, section "Networking" → "Routers"
There are two ways to create a router:
1. Manually from the routers section
Go to the project, section "Networking" → "Routers" and click on "Create router".
In the appeared window configure a new router:
1.1. Select the network and subnet to configure routing. If necessary, you can add multiple subnets by clicking on "Add subnet". For more information about creating and configuring a network and subnet, see the article "Networking".
1.2. Activate the "Enable SNAT" selector if you need access to the external network.
A separate public IP address is announced for a router with access to an external network.
1.3. In the "Static routes" section, you can specify the routing scheme
Specify the destination prefix and the address of the next hop. To add the next route, click the "Add route" button.
1.4. Enter a name for the router and click "Create router".
2. Automatically after creating a network
After creating a network, a new router is being automatically created in the cloud to allow further routing of traffic.
For more information about creating and configuring a network and subnet, see the article "Networking".
For automatically created routers, you can make the same settings as for manually created routers.
To manage routers, open the list of routers: inside the project, section "Networking" → "Routers"
To make changes with an existing router, click the selector on the right from the selected router and select the "Overview" option.
In the appearing window, you can find general information about the router: the router ID, whether there is a SNAT for accessing the external network, and the creation date.
In the "Subnets" section, you can manage the list of subnets added to the router: add new subnets and delete old ones.
To edit routes, go to the "Static routes" tab and click "Edit static routes".
To add a new route, click "Add Route" and specify the destination prefix and address of the nexthop, or delete an unnecessary route by clicking the "Delete" button on the right of the route.
To save settings, click "Save static routes".
