Step 3: Set up teams, private gateways and dedicated servers (Advanced/Enterprise plans)

Network

Gateways

A private gateway connects a dedicated private server with a team it is assigned to. Each gateway can have one or more different servers with static IP addresses. Multiple gateways ensure better load balance and make it easier for you to grant your teams access to servers. In the Gateways section, owners can create gateways and add teams and servers to them. To access the section, click Network -> Gateways

Servers

A dedicated private server is a server you’ve purchased so your teams have their own dedicated IP address that only they can use. Dedicated servers can also be used for allowlisting (whitelisting) IPs to access your remote resources and even setting up a site-to-site connection. You will need to buy a license for each of your dedicated servers. In case your resources (e.g., load) decrease, the number of server licenses will need to be adjusted manually. 

In the Servers section, you can see a list of your dedicated IP servers with their IP addresses, gateways, and load information.  To access the section, click Network -> Servers.

To add a server, please go to the Gateways section.
