Create and Manage vApp Networks

The following network types are imported into OnApp:

  • organization vDC networks (this network allows virtual servers in the organization vDC to communicate with each other and to access other networks)
  • external networks (this network provides the interface to the Internet for virtual servers connected to external organization vDC networks)
  • vApp networks (this network  controls how the virtual servers in a vApp connect to each other and to organization vDC networks)

You can view the list of imported vApp networks at OnApp Cloud Control Panel. Also you can add a vApp network in VMware Cloud Director using OnApp Control Panel.
