You need to configure the network interfaces (the "interfaces"
configuration section), and you need to enable unicast forwarding
(inside the "fea" section). If you need to use routing policy or to
advertise, say static or connected routes, then you need to
configure the policy as well.

It depends what you need to test.
The simplest topology would be two PCs connected with a single
subnet between them.

Hope that helps,
