The Perimeter81 Developer Hub

Welcome to the Perimeter81 developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Perimeter81 as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

How to Modify Your Network

Your new Network allows you to create, manage and secure fully flexible, customized networks that are multi-regional and interconnected to your cloud and on-premise environments.

Once you have created a Network, you can easily edit the name, tags and icon of your Network to help you identify the different purposes and/or teams your network will support.

How to Edit Your Network

To modify your Network, enter the ‘Network’ tab in the Management Portal. Select the three dots (…) to the right of your Network.

Select a Custom DNS

You can assign a Custom DNS to the selected Network (the default is Automatic). This will allow you to utilize your organization’s DNS servers, as well as local domain names. You can choose to either obtain a DNS server address automatically, or select a primary and secondary DNS address manually.

After defining the custom primary and secondary DNS addresses, this information will be highlighted on the Network screen:

Custom DNS - Automatic configuration

Custom DNS - Automatic configuration

Custom DNS - Manual configuration

Custom DNS - Manual configuration

How to Delete Your Network

Deleting the Network will remove the selected Network and all its configurations.

How to Add a Region to Your Existing Network

Our Multi-Regional Feature allows you to deploy private gateways in multiple locations, so you can create a network to best serve international branches and remote employees with low latency and high availability.

To add a Region to your Network, select the three dots (…) to the right of your Network and choose ‘Add Region’.

On the “Add Region” screen, you will be able to choose from the available Regions and select the desired number of gateways (limited to the number of available licenses).

Split Tunneling

If you would like to select specific network subnets to go through from the client to the Perimeter 81 network, instead of full tunnel mode (where all the traffic is encrypted and proxied through the Perimeter 81 network), you will need to manually specify which subnets you’d like to include through the tunnel.
The default configuration is automatic (full tunnel).

After defining the split tunnelling subnets, this information will be available on the Network screen:

Routes

In most cases, once you set up the tunnel, you can specify remote subnets to be automatically added as propagated Routes. However, it is still possible to add manual routes and associate them with the corresponding tunnel as the exit point.
You can see the Routes on the Route table menu of the gateway:

How to Add Gateways to Your Region

Our Multi-Regional Feature allows you to deploy private gateways in multiple locations, so you can create a network to best serve international branches and remote employees with low latency and high availability.

To add a Region to your Network, select the three dots (…) to the right of your Network and choose ‘Add Region’.

Add the desired number of gateways (limited to the number of available licenses):

How to Add Tunnels to Your Gateways

You can add tunnels to your existing Gateways by pressing the three-dots (...) menu on the Gateway and selecting “Add Tunnel”.

The process for adding tunnels in an existing Region is the same as described on the “How to Create Your Network” chapter.

How to Add a Region to Your Existing Network

You can add a Region to your existing Network by pressing the three-dots (...) on the Network and selecting “Add Region”.

On the “Add Region” screen, you will be able to choose from the available Regions and select the desired number of Gateways (limited to the number of available licenses).
