You can access file gateways through classic or VPC networks. To access file gateways, you must configure networks and security groups first.

  • Access file gateways deployed on Alibaba Cloud
    • To allow an ECS instance in a classic network to communicate with a file gateway deployed on Alibaba Cloud, you must use ClassicLink to connect the ECS instance to the file gateway first.
    • To use an ECS instance deployed in a VPC network to access a file gateway deployed in another VPC network, use Express Connect or Cloud Enterprise Network.
  • Access on-premises file gateways

    To access a file gateway from an on-premises data center or private network where the gateway is deployed, configure your network based on the actual network conditions.
