Create and manage VLANs/subnets for your Private Clouds¶
Open the VLANs/Subnets tab on the Network page to create and manage VLANs/subnets for your Private Clouds. After you create a VLAN/subnet, you can apply firewall rules.
Create a VLAN/subnet¶
- Access the CloudSimple portal and select Network on the side menu.
- Select VLANs/subnets.
Click Create VLAN/Subnet.
Select the Private Cloud for the new VLAN/subnet.
- Enter a VLAN ID.

- To enable routing on the VLAN (subnet), specify the subnet CIDR range. Make sure that the CIDR range doesn't overlap with any of your on-premises subnets, Azure subnets, or gateway subnet.
Use VLAN information to set up a distributed port group in vSphere¶
To create a distributed port group in vSphere, follow the instructions in the VMware topic 'Add a distributed port group' in the vSphere Networking Guide. When setting up the distributed port group, provide the VLAN information from the CloudSimple configuration.
Select a Firewall Table¶
Firewall tables and associated rules are defined on the Network > Firewall tables page. To select the firewall table to apply to the VLAN/subnet for a Private Cloud, select the VLAN/subnet click Firewall table attachment on the VLANs/Subnets page. See Firewall Tables for instructions on setting up firewall tables and defining rules.
A subnet can be associated with one firewall table. A firewall table can be associated with multiple subnets.
