  • Gateway:

  • Make sure that this matches any of the other changes you have made in this dialog.

NIC Configuration section

  • In this section, you can modify the IP address, hostname, and network mask of any Network Interface Controller (NIC) associated with the appliance. (If you configured multiple NICs for the Filr appliance, you can configure the additional NICs.)

    • In the NIC Configuration section, click the ID of the NIC.

    • Edit the IP address, hostname, or network mask.

      If you change the IP address, you must restart the appliance in order for the change to be reflected.

    • Click OK.

Appliance Administration UI (Port 9443) Access Restrictions section

  • In this section, specify the IP address of any networks for which you want to allow access to the Filr site.

  • Leave this section blank to allow administrative access from any network.

OK button

  • Click this to save your changes, then click Reconfigure Filr Server.

    This stops and restarts your Filr server. Because this results in server downtime, you should restart the server during off-peak hours.

    User sessions can be affected by the above changes.

Cancel button

  • Click this to cancel the changes you have made.
