Use a Cloudflare IP
In addition to using Magic Transit with your own IP address, you can use Magic Transit with a Cloudflare-managed IP address. This option is helpful for users who do not meet the
/24 prefix length requirements or who want to protect a smaller network.
To protect your network using a Cloudflare IP address, contact your account manager. After receiving your IP address, you will need to:
- Create a tunnel.
- Set up static routes.
- Configure health checks.
- Confirm tunnel and endpoint health checks were properly configured.
- Update your infrastructure at your own pace to use the allocated Cloudflare IPs.
When you use a Cloudflare-managed IP space, you do not need a Letter Of Authorization (LOA). You can skip this step from the Prerequisites page.
