Traffic Routes is a feature found in the Traffic Management section of your Network application that allows you to send traffic to a specific destination such as a WAN port or a VPN Client interface. This feature may also be referred to as Policy Based Routing or PBR.
- A Next-Gen UniFi gateway or UniFi OS Console with an integrated Next-Gen gateway.
Traffic Routes can be configured to:
- Match an entire LAN network or a specific client device.
- Send traffic to the secondary WAN port.
- Match either All or Specific client traffic such as a geographical region.
Specific traffic can match on the following:
- IP address + port
- IP address range
- Domain name
Note: Domain matching requires the client devices to use the UniFi gateway as the DNS server.

- Interface: VPN Client
If you want to send all traffic from a Virtual Network to the secondary WAN port, then create a Traffic Route with the following options:
