Configuring Network Interfaces
To configure these settings for an interface on the SMA appliance
- Navigate to the Network > Interfaces page and click the edit icon next to the interface you want to configure.
- In the Edit Interfaces dialog box on the SMA appliance, type an unused static IP address in the IP Address field. This IP address should reside within the local subnet to which your SMA appliance is connected.
Type Subnet Mask in the corresponding field.
- In the IPv6 address/prefix field, optionally enter an IPv6 address for global scope. If you leave this field empty, IPv6-enabled devices can still automatically connect using a link-local address. The scope is indicated in a tooltip on the Network > Interfaces page.
In the Speed drop-down menu, Auto Negotiate is selected by default to allow the SMA appliance to automatically negotiate the speed and duplex mode with the connected switch or other networking device. Ethernet connections are typically auto negotiated. If you want to force a certain link speed and duplex mode, select one of the following options:
- 1000 Mbps – Full Duplex
- 100 Mbps – Full Duplex
- 100 Mbps – Half Duplex
- 10 Mbps – Full Duplex
- 10 Mbps – Half Duplex
- For the Management options, if you want to enable remote management of the SMA appliance from this interface, select the supported management protocol(s): HTTP, HTTPS, Ping, SNMP.
- Click OK.
