Product V6- Create and Manage Networks

This article applies to multiple NetFoundry network Products (version 6 and prior, and version 7 or higher).  Refer to Finding Your Network Version for detailed information on determining your Network Version. 


Your organization will have one or more NetFoundry Networks associated with it. Each network is an entirely stand-alone, air-gapped environment, i.e. networks cannot share clients, gateways, endpoint groups, services, or AppWANs with other networks.

Viewing Networks in the Console

To change which network you are viewing, use the pull-down menu in the upper lefthand corner of the page to select a network. Use the input box at the top to filter the list.



Manage Your Organization's Networks

In the console, you manage your organization's networks from the Manage Networks page. Click on the green globe icon to open the navigation menu. From there, click on Manage Networks. From this page you can:

  • Create new networks
  • Rename networks
  • Delete networks
  • View network details
  • Set O365 optimization preferences
  • Download YML files of your networks


Click the blue plus-sign in the upper right corner to create a new network. Use the ellipsis menu at the end of each row to take actions on an individual network.

Deleting a network is permanent. All clients, gateways, services, groups, and AppWANs will be deleted as well. You cannot undo a deleted network.

Refer to Configure Microsoft O365 Optimization for more information about setting O365 optimization preferences.

Create a New Network

To create a new network, click the blue plus-sign icon in the upper-right hand corner of the page. You are prompted to give your network a unique name.

It will take a few minutes for NetFoundry to stand up the required infrastructure to support it. While it is being built, the Console will show a spinner icon next to the Network's name. Once it is finished the icon will change to a green circle, and you may begin provisioning your network.

You are also able to create a new network as code. More information on on 'as code' creation can be found here: Network as Code


View Network Details

To view details about your network, choose Details from the ellipsis menu in the networks table.


A dialog opens showing you the IP addresses, protocols, and ports associated with the underlying network infrastructure. These IP addresses and ports should be whitelisted in any outbound firewall whitelists you may have deployed in your network perimeter.
