Manage Networks

In this article, you will learn how to use the platform to manage your corporate network.

The gateways you will create over the Sites screen meet everything you need to provide a reliable, high-performance, and secure WAN connection to your remote offices and mobile/remote workers by utilizing the most up-to-date tunneling protocols.

  1. To view the networks connected to a gateway you created, follow these steps:

  2. Go to the Timus Manager and navigate to the Sites page.

  3. Choose the site you are interested in, click on the ellipsis icon at the end of the row, then select View.

  4. The site's page will open, displaying a list of the networks linked to the site.

  5. Locate the network you want to view and click on the ellipsis icon at the end of its row.

  6. Select Details.

  7. You will find three tabs labeled General, Configuration, Miscellaneous and DNS on Primary WAN, WireGuard and OpenVPN. These tabs allow some edits the networks connected to your cloud and on-premises environments. The DNS tab is not existed on Primary WAN.

  8. On the General tab of Primary WAN, WireGuard and OpenVPN, you can change the name of the network.

  9. On the Miscellaneous tab of WireGuard and OpenVPN, you can enable/disable SSL Inspection. If enabled, you need to make sure that the certificate has been installed successfully.

  10. On the DNS tab of WireGuard and OpenVPN, you can enter your Internal/external DNSes and Search Domains. You can enter up to 6 Internal/external DNSes and 10 Search Domains there. If you want to enter Internal/external DNSes and Search Domains, you need click on Add DNS or Add Search Domain buttons as shown in the image below.

DNS Tooltip:

Enter DNS addresses if you want to use servers different than Timus servers in this network. Maximum 6 addresses can be entered with WireGuard and 1 address can be entered with OpenVPN. If multiple DNS addresses are entered, they are tried in the sequence they are placed in the settings. If it succeeds with one address, the remaining addresses are skipped. If no address is entered, Timus DNS will be used.

Search Domains Tooltip:

The DNS suffixes entered here will be automatically appended to all domain names when making a DNS lookup. For example, if a company office has a server called "", they can announce DNS suffix "" via DHCP and that server becomes accessible simply as "server1". Whenever you visit http://server1/ the system will automatically try instead. If multiple DNS suffixes are configured, the DNS suffixes are resolved in the sequence they are placed in the settings. For example, assume that the following suffixes are added in that order:

When an end user types "server1", the operating system attempts to resolve the FQDNs in the following sequence. If it succeeds with one suffix, the remaining suffixes are skipped. Maximum 10 suffixes can be entered.
