In just a few simple steps, you can turn on IP Forwarding on your Stingray Traffic Manager   


Here are the detailed steps for enabling IP Forwarding STM:


  1. Modify the global.cfg file:
    1. You can find this file at /opt/zeus/zxtm/global.cfg (or whatever custom path you used for install)
    2. Modify the file (using vi or another text editor, i.e. vi /opt/zeus/zxtm/global.cfg)
    3. Add the below line anywhere in the file:
      1. appliance!managenat no





  1. Once that file is set, you can go into the STM interface.  Go to System-> Sysctl
    1. In that set the following value/key parameter:
      1. net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1




That is all that you need and IP Forwarding is started immediately.
