Server Mode Deployments

Server modeDefault mode of a virtual appliance. Out of path, single port (mgmt0), one IP address. is the default for virtual appliances and:

Unlike other Out-of-Path deployments, this mode requires the hosts to configure a route or gatewayAlso called protocol converters, can operate at any layer of the OSI model. The job of a gateway is much more complex than that of a router or switch. Typically, a gateway must convert one protocol stack into another. to the Silver Peak appliance IPInternet Protocol. Network layer protocol in the TCP/IP stack that enables a connectionless internetwork service. address to redirect traffic to the Silver Peak.

Traffic redirected to the Silver Peak is optimized and placed in a tunnelEncapsulating one type of network protocol (called the payload protocol) within a different delivery protocol. A logical connection between two devices, in our case, two Silver Peak appliances.. This includes:
