Create Router

Neutron routers enable routing of traffic between two or more Neutron networks. A router is capable of routing traffic between external, provider or tenant Neutron networks. A router which serves to connect one or more distinct networks is sometimes referred to as a gateway.

You must be a self-service user or an administrator to perform this operation.

To create a Neutron router, follow the steps given below.

  1. Log in to Clarity.
  2. Click Networks in the left panel.
  3. Click the Routers tab.

  5. Enter the Router name.
  6. Optionally, select the external network that the router should connect to from the Set External Network drop-down.
