Configuring Network Settings

Before configuring the network settings, you need to setup access to SecureSync web user interface ("Web UI"). This can be done by assigning a static IP address, or using a DHCP address. For more information, see Setting up an IP Address.

Once you have assigned the IP address, login to the Web UI. For more information, see Accessing the Web UI.

To configure network settings, or monitor your network, navigate to SecureSync's Network Setup screen.

To access the Network Setup screen:

  • Navigate to MANAGEMENT > Network Setup. The Network Setup screen is divided into three panels:
  • The Actions panel provides:

    • General Settings: Allows quick access to the primary network settings necessary to connect SecureSync to a network. See General Network Settings.
    • Web Interface Settings:
      • Web interface timeout: Determines how long a user can stay logged on. For more information, see Web UI Timeout.
    • Access Control: Allows the configuration of access restrictions from assigned networks/nodes.
    • Login Banner: Allows the administrator to configure a custom banner message to be displayed on the SecureSync Web UI login page and the CLI (Note: There is a 2000 character size limit).
    • SSH: This button takes you to the SSH Setup window. For details on setting up SSH, see SSH.
    • HTTPS: This button takes you to the HTTPS Setup window. For details on setting up HTTPS, see HTTPS.
    • System Time Message: Setup a once-per-second time message to be sent to receivers via multicast. For details, see System Time Message.

    The Network Services panel is used to enable (ON) and disable (OFF) network services, as well as the Web UI display mode, details see: Network Services.

    The Ports panel not only displays STATUS information, but is used also to set up and manage SecureSync’s network ports via three buttons:

    • INFO button: Displays the Ethernet port Status window for review purposes.
    • GEAR button: Displays the Ethernet port settings window for editing purposes.
    • TABLE button: Displays a window that allows adding, editing, and reviewing Static Routes.
