8.3.0

Set gateways for IPv4 and IPv6 networks and virtual addresses.

The gateway parameter is under the configure network command. The configure network command allows you to change the default IPv4 and IPv6 gateways.

You can view general and specific network settings, including gateways and virtual addresses from the Main Session mode of the Administration Console. Use show network from Main Session mode. A list of IPv4 and IPv6 network gateways will display.

Proteus> show network
IPv4 Gateway = 192.0.2.1
IPv6 Gateway = 2001:db8::1
Note:
  • You cannot configure interface and network settings of DNS/DHCP Server appliances that are part of a functioning xHA pair. Configure interface and network settings before creating a high availability pair.
  • You cannot configure interfaces if the DNS/DHCP Server is under Address Manager control. Remove the DNS/DHCP Server from Address Manager control to configure interfaces.
  • You cannot configure interfaces if network redundancy (bonding) is enabled. Disable redundancy from the Administration Console to configure interfaces. Disabling bonding will also remove the DNS/DHCP Server from Address Manager control.
  • xHA with IPv4 only: no IPv6 addresses must be present on either the Active or Passive nodes.
  • xHA with IPv4 and IPv6: both the Active and Passive Nodes must be configured with only one IPv6 address. Multiple IPv6 address may prevent successful creation of xHA. For complete information, refer to Managing xHA.
