Switch between 2 routers with proxy ACLs rules

This topic is for transferring request to the right router using ACLs on the Same Artica proxy server

Our proxy use 2 network Interfaces.

  • One is linked to the router1 and on interface linked to the router2
  • We have 2 LANs, one is and second is
  • We want the proxy using the router2 for the requests and the other for the router1



First, create Routing rules

After configuring your network Interfaces, you need to enforce the Artica Proxy to make the TCP routing “hermetic” for each network Interface.

Use this Article in order to create routing rules.
Don’t forget to make this operation ! Without routing rules the proxy will only use the first defined Interface .

Second, create your ACLS

  • On the TOP menu, use “Your Proxy” item.
  • Use “Complete ACLs” link
