In the OPN (Oktawave Private Network) tab, you can create virtual private networks. In this way you build zones isolated from one another, so that for example the instance responsible for maintaining the database will not be accessed from the public network. OPN service allows you to assign each instance to one or more virtual private networks created.
To create and manage virtual private networks, on the subpage Services, select the OPN.
You will see a list of already created networks. You can sort them by clicking column headings.
To add a new network, click the Add Private Network button above the list.
Now you need to name the new network and select a pool of addresses.
From the list, you can also edit and delete existing networks. Editing is limited to the name change only.
To add an instance to the newly created network, select it and click the name (subpage Oktawave | Services | OCI). You will find a list of instances in the OCI tab or Dashboard.
In the instance panel choose OPN.
Under the list of addresses click Add Private Network.
To connect an instance to a just created private network, select it and specify the address by typing a number from 0-255. To confirm the new settings, click the "Add" next to it.
These activities must be repeated for all the instances that you want to connect to the private network.
To disconnect an instance from a private network, simply select it and click Detach button.
Every instance in the network is visible in the list in the OPN tab. The number in brackets indicates how many instances have been connected. Click on the blue plus sign to view a full list.
