UMP (Unified Media Platform)

13.10 Network Settings

 

Network

 

This page allows you to configure the basic networking properties of the device, such as its IP address, subnet mask, gateway address, DNS servers, hostname and connection protocol (DHCP or static). It is recommended to use DHCP, though the device can be configured entirely statically. An overview of the parameters is presented below:

 

 

Hostname

Here you can specify a hostname for the device to use. Unless you have more than one UMP, it is recommended to keep the default name 'UMP'.

IP Address Settings

Here you can specify whether the device should retrieve an IP from a DHCP server or use static details.

IP Address

Here you can see the device's current IP address and specify a new one.

Subnet Mask

Here you can see the device's current subnet mask and specify a new one.

Gateway

Here you can see the device's current default gateway and specify a new one.

DNS Server #1

Here you can see the device's current primary DNS server and specify a new one.

DNS Server #2

Here you can see the device's current secondary DNS server and specify a new one.

DNS Domain

Here you can see the device's current DNS domain name and specify a new one.

 

 

When you select static IP addressing, the entry fields for the various required parameters should be enabled. Note that this function does not work in all browsers that do not fully support JavaScript. It is recommended to use the device’s Web Browser in case of any problems.

 

Once the required changes have been made, select the Apply Settings button below the input fields. A popup will appear, asking for confirmation whether the changes should be applied. If you answer yes, the device will attempt to restart the networking subsystem, which may take up to 3 minutes.
