[ScreenOS] Binding an Interface to a Zone



Article ID: KB4762 KB Last Updated: 06 Jan 2021Version: 8.0

This article describes how to bind an interface to a zone. A WebUI and a CLI procedure are described.



WebUI Procedure

To bind an interface to a zone, perform the following steps:

Note: This article only applies to interfaces that have not been bound to a zone.

  1. Open the WebUI. For an example of how to access the WebUI, consult: KB4060 - Accessing Your NetScreen, SSG, or ISG Firewall Using the WebUI

  2. From the ScreenOS options menu, click Network, and then click Interfaces.

  1. From the interface table, choose the interface from which you wish to bind an interface, click Edit.

For this example, we chose to edit the ethernet2 interface on a NetScreen-50. The NetScreen-5XP and the NetScreen-5XT only have four interfaces.

  1. From the Zone Name drop-down menu, click to choose a zone.

For this example, we chose the DMZ zone. The NetScreen-5XP and the NetScreen-5XT do not have a DMZ.

  1. Click OK.

Note: Once an interface is bound to a zone, an IP address can be assigned to it. For more information on defining an IP on an interface, go to Defining an IP on an Interface.


CLI Procedure

NS-5XP-> set int ethernet0/1 zone DMZ
