After your direct network connection is provisioned for vCloud Air, use the vCloud Air Web UI to set up your virtual machines to route traffic through the connection. To route traffic for your virtual machines through your direct network connection, you must create NAT rules for the virtual machines so that they route traffic through the connection.

Note

For information about configuring NAT rules, see Add a NAT Rule.

Your network service provider has physically provisioned your direct network connection to the vCloud Air data center and VMware has completed the set up.

You have Network Administrator privilege in vCloud Air.
