3. Networks & Interfaces
The Networks and Interface menu allows for the configuration of the 4 Ethernet interfaces and Vlan interfaces
You have to configure the LAN interface with your current IP range and the WAN interface with a different IP range. (when ready to go live you need to change the IP address on the router that coincides with the IP range of the WAN interface of the iShield) The iShield will become your gateway to the internet for your LAN.
3.1 Edit Interface
Each interface can be given a description to best describe the interface function, then select the designation of the interface if it's to be either a WAN (Wide Area Network) or LAN (Local Area Network).
Mode: you have 4 options to select from,
When you have completed your interface setup, save your changes.
Please note that even though you have save your interface setup you still need to reload the unit from the configuration commands menu for the settings to take effect.
The standard setup uses two ports, one for the LAN and one for the WAN. If you have a second WAN connection then configure one of the other ethernet ports (eth2 or eth3) for your second connection.
