Configure RSA SecureID 130 Appliance with network routing and static routes


the RSA SecureID appliance comes with 2 NICs, you can configure 1 as primary and the other as secondary, both NICs can be used for authentication, radius and all the normal traffic.

however, you can configure a default gateway on only 1 NIC, this is very limiting, specially if you have VLANs and multiple subnets that you want to specify its routing and they are not behind the default GW.

the RSA appliance is running a normal Linux distribution, so to add some routing here are the steps:

From SSH or local login on the RSA appliance:

Sudo –s

Note: SU – will not work

<enter the root password>

/sbin/ip route add 192.168.205.0/24 via 192.168.204.142 dev eth0

In this case the destination is 192.68.205.0 and 192.168.204.142 is my router which has 2 interfaces (192.168.204.142 and 192.168.205.142).

I think you can configure RIP as well, but that will be epic Open-mouthed smile.

    Hi
    This won’t leave a persistent route on the appliance.
    Needed to create the route-eth0 text file with the required route in it.
    thanks
