Issue/Introduction

There is a need to bind network traffic from SMG for the specific type of traffic like:

- syslog

- antivirus & antispam definitions

- snmp

There is no interface binding option for this.

Resolution

This functionality can be achieved by configuring static routes, available under Hosts->Configuration-><Hostname>->Ethernet->Static Routes

Example: to route Syslog traffic via specific NIC:

- in "Destination Address" put Syslog server's IP address

- in "Gateway Address" put IP address of the router leading to Syslog server

- in "Interface" select NIC which should send the traffic
