How to create a router ?

A router in Artica terms is a link between 2 networks cards.
A router is able to transfert communication from a Network card to a network card in order to communicate physical networks.

If you have 2 networks cards on your Artica server and you want to create a router, you need first to install/enable the FireWall.
