The “Expert Mode” menu item allows you to edit the configuration files of a Sixnet IndustrialPro/EnterprisePro router directly. This option provides the ability to perform advanced configuration capabilities for complex configurations.
As the Gateway Administration Utility (GAU) is XML-based, the GAU writes the configuration to an XML- based configuration file and then generates the necessary system configuration files. Therefore, it is not recommended that you perform configuration activities using this facility unless instructed to do so by Sixnet Technical Support.
WARNING: Should you choose to edit the configuration files directly, we encourage you to contact Sixnet Technical Support. Once you have manually edited a configuration file without the use of the GAU, you should refrain from any further configurations to that subsystem through the GAU, as it will overwrite any changes you may have made.
The “Configure Sub-systems” menu item allows you to edit the main configuration files of the Sixnet router. Again, it is not recommended that you perform configuration activities using this facility unless instructed to do so by Sixnet Technical Support.
Click on the “Configure Sub-systems” menu item and the following window will appear:

Predefined Interface Names
The “Predefined Interface Names” menu item allows you to create a named interface for use in applications such as OpenVPN that require a logical interface, i.e. tun0 that the Sixnet router does not know about. Using the Predefined Interface Name will place the name of the interface into the pull-down menus of interface selections to be used by the system.
- Click on the “Predefined Interface Names” menu item and the following window will appear:
- Click on the “Add” button to add a named interface and the following pop-up window will appear:
Enter (logical) Interface Name: Enter the name of the interface to be predefined, i.e. tun0, gre4, ppp100.
- Click on the “Finish” button to populate the Predefined (logical) Interface Names screen
- Click on the “Save” button and the following pop-up window will appear:
