Summary
Virtual segment can be set up to define traffic using a VLAN ID, an endpoint pair (source and destination IP addresses of a packet), or both. One or more physical segments are then assigned to the virtual segment. Virtual segments are members of a segment group and the assigned devices are not exposed in segment group membership. You define the priority order for virtual segment so that any overlapping definitions are resolved. Overlapping definitions are only allowed on N-Platform IPS TOS 3.1 and newer devices. Attempting to define an overlapping virtual segment on a device which does not allow it will produce an error.
