The IP address for the DEV1 interface must be a fixed address. It is practically always a private address. The default address from the factory is 10.0.0.1 / 255.255.255.0
EasyTunnel: The IP address and subnet mask for each EasyTunnel Client are configured from the EasyTunnel Server.
- Auto Subnet Agent:
The Subnet Agent makes the entire DEV1 subnet available to LinkManagers connecting to this SiteManager with support for TCP, UDP, and ICMP ECHO protocols.
When Disabled, the subnet agent is never started for the DEV1 subnet.
When Enabled (the default), the DEV1 subnet agent is automatically started provided that no active device agentshave a target address in the DEV1 subnet.
When Always, the DEV1 subnet agent is always started, even if there are device agents associated with the DEV1 subnet.
When Always + Static Routes, the DEV1 subnet agent is always started, and in addition, it enables forwarding to the subnets specified in Static Routes which have a gateway on DEV1.
- Ethernet Settings: Force ethernet link speed and duplex settings. This may be necessary if autonegotiation isn't supported by the attached equipment, or if the negotiated setting doesn't work reliably, e.g. because of noise or a mediocre cable. If you force the setting, you must make sure that the attached equipment runs with the same settings, of course.
- Proxy ARP: If you enable this, the SiteManager will answer ARP requests on the DEV1 network for addresses to which it has a route, if that route itself doesn't use the DEV1 interface.
- SSID: Enter the WiFi SSID (network name) for wireless clients on the DEV1 network.
If this field is left blank, the device name of the SiteManager will be used.
- Key: Enter the WPA2 key (pass phrase) for wireless clients on the DEV1 network.
It must be between 8 and 63 characters in length, and it must contain at least one non-alphabetic character.
If this field is left blank, WiFi operation is disabled for the DEV1 network.
- WiFi Mode: When set to "Client", the WiFi interface is set for UPLINK operation; the relevant client settings are configured on the System > UPLINK2 page.
When set to "Access Point", wireless computers can connect using the above SSID/Key and appear as if they were directly connected to the DEV1 network through a switch.
Note that a DHCP server will usually be needed on the DEV1 network - you can use either an external server, or the one built into this SiteManager.
- 802.11 Mode: Select 802.11b (11 Mbps), 802.11g (54 Mpbs), or 802.11n (150 Mbps) mode.
- Channel: Enter a radio channel on which to operate.
To avoid interference, you should pick one that is 4-5 (or more) channels away from channels used by other nearby devices, if possible. Note that other kinds of devices (such as Bluetooth devices, cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors) operate in the same frequency band; you may have to experiment to find the best channel to use.
Note: some countries may forbid the use of particular channels. Eg. channel 12 and 13 are forbidden in the USA.
