This topic describes how to associate a Smart Access Gateway (SAG) instance with a network instance. You must associate an SAG instance with a network instance if you want to connect the SAG to Alibaba Cloud. You can connect an SAG to Alibaba Cloud through a leased line, the Internet, or the active and standby links.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Smart Access Gateway console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Smart Access Gateway, and then click the target instance ID or click Configure Network in the Actions column.
  3. On the SAG instance details page, click Network Instance Details.
  4. Click Add Network Instance.
  5. In the Add Network Instance dialog box, configure the network instance to be associated with the SAG instance.
    The parameters are described as follows:
    • Network Type: the type of the network associated with the SAG instance.

      To connect the SAG to Alibaba Cloud through a leased line, associate the SAG with the VBR. To connect the SAG to Alibaba Cloud through the Internet, associate the SAG with a CCN instance.

      The CCN is a device access matrix that consists of Alibaba Cloud distributed access gateways. After an SAG instance is associated with a CCN instance, the SAG can communicate with other gateways associated with the CCN instance.

      Note The CCN instance and the SAG instance must be in the same area.
