By default all new Catalyst Cloud projects in the Porirua region (nz-por-1) are created with a router and network. If you have removed this, or simply wish to create additional networks, then the following guide will show you the steps required to achieve this.
We need to create a router and network/subnet.
Navigate to the “Routers” section and click “Create Router”:
Name the router “border-router”, select admin state “UP” and select “public-net” as the external network:
Navigate to the “Networks” section and click “Create Network”:
Name your network “private-net”, select create subnet and click “Next”:
Name your subnet “private-subnet”, choose an address for your subnet in CIDR notation and click “Next”:
The Subnet Details page is normally, by default, empty. However you can define the different fields however you’d like. Specifications like:
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Allows you to assign IPs dynamically to devices on your network.
This is the range of IPs that you are going to be allocating. For example from 10.0.0.10 to 10.0.0.200
specifying the DNS Name Servers for the required region
At the moment if you leave the DNS field blank the dashboard will automatically allocate it to the catalyst cloud DNS. So it is entirely optional.
Click on the router name in the router list:
Select the “Interfaces” tab and click “+Add Interface”:
Select the correct subnet:
You should now have a network topology that looks like this:
