Networks and Gateways Settings


In FerrumGate, network is virtual. You can think a few resources (redis,prod mysql, prod k8s) which are called as service, creates a virtual network. You can create as much networks as you want.

Network Definition

Network Definition


  • Client ip range

    When clients creates tunnels to this network, they will get ip from this CIDR.

  • Service ip range

    This is virtual network IP CIDR. All services will get ip from this range

  • Tunnel Server

    Tunnel server ip and port (UDP/TCP). This is the endpoint for gateway. Client will reach joined gateways through this endpoint.


Gateway is a door (tunnel server) that listens on a $PORT, and opens the door to virtual networks. When a gateway is seen on a cluster, it will wait to join a Network. Each gateway binds to a FerrumGate Network. If you want to activate a gateway bind to a FerrumGate network.
