Virtual Server (Dedicated) Gen2: network connections

by Community Manager on ‎21-12-2017 05:41 PM

Is the Virtual Server (Dedicated) Gen2 service connected to the internet?

Your Virtual Server (Dedicated) Gen2 service is provisioned with a Telstra internet connection by default. This includes internet and SMTP mail relay traffic.

 

How do I create a private network connection?

For services in Melbourne and Sydney, you’ll be provided with an SSL VPN connection and have the option of using our Cloud Gateway service to connect to the Telstra IP network.

Perth data centre users must select either a Telstra IP network connection or SSL VPN.

 

What is NSX and can I use it?

VMware NSX® is the network virtualisation used on the Virtual Server (Dedicated) Gen2 service. To ensure compliance with our security best practice, access is not given to infrastructure that is managed by us to support your service – this includes NSX.

 

Is a firewall provided and can I access it?

Firewalls are provided for both your public and private networks to increase the security and privacy of your virtual servers.

Both private networks and public networks are created with default firewall rules – all network traffic is allowed by default on the private network, and all traffic is blocked by default on the public network. These rules can by updated via the Cloud Services management console.

See the Virtual Server (Dedicated) Gen2 network and security guide for more information.

 

Can I add load balancers?

Yes. You can request load balancers from the Load balancers page in the Network & security section of the Cloud Services management console.
