The following table gives a short description about the other fields in this page:
Parameter Valid Range Brief Description
IP address Where x = 0 to 255
It is a unique address that identifies a device on the internet or a local network. You can only use static IPv4 addresses for permanent addresses. For example:
Subnet Where x = 0 to 255
Subnet is a logical subdivision of an IP network. For example:
Gateway Where x = 0 to 255
A gateway IP refers to a device on a network which sends local network traffic to other networks. For example:
Preferred DNS Where x = 0 to 255
It is the primary choice to handle internet protocol mapping For example:
Alternate DNS Where x = 0 to 255
It is used when the primary DNS server does not respond For example:
You can validate the network connectivity by clicking the ‘Test’ button on this screen.
