Put the Appliance in System Bypass Mode

Administration > Tools > Bypass

System Bypass mode is only available for certain models of EdgeConnect physical appliances. Virtual appliances do not support bypass mode.

In System Bypass mode, the fail-to-wire (or fail-to-glass) card DOES NOT receive or process packets.

Fail-to-wire network interfaces mechanically isolate the appliances from the network in the event of a hardware, software, or power failure. This ensures that all traffic bypasses the failed appliance and maximizes uptime.

  • In an in-line deployment (Bridge mode), the LAN interface is physically connected to the WAN interface.

  • In Server mode and any Router mode, the appliance is in an open-port state.


When the appliance is in Bypass mode, a message displays in red text in the upper-right corner of the user interface.
