Internal and gateway networks provide the following services.

Configuring networking services for a gateway is accomplished by using a combination of the vCloud Air console and by using vCloud Director:

NAT: vCloud Air or vCloud Director

DHCP: vCloud Director

Load Balancer: vCloud Director

DNS: vCloud Director

Firewall Rules: vCloud Air or vCloud Director

VPN: vCloud Director (IPsec VPN) and vCloud Connector (SSL VPN)

Static Routing: vCloud Director

You can find information about how these services are implemented in vCloud Air from the following sources.
