  4. In the NIC Configuration 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.)

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

    2. 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
