To connect an office branch connected to a Smart Access Gateway (SAG) instance to Alibaba Cloud, you must create a Cloud Connect Network (CCN) instance first. Then, associate the SAG instance with the CCN instance and the CCN instance with a CEN instance. This allows the office branch to access resources on Alibaba Cloud.


  1. Log on to the SAG console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click CCN.
  3. On the CCN page, click Create CCN Instance.
  4. In the Create CCN Instance pane that appears, specify a name for the CCN instance.
    The name must be 2 to 100 characters in length and can contain letters, Chinese characters, digits, underscores (_), and hyphens (-). The name must start with a letter or Chinese character.
  5. Click OK.
