Configuring Network Services

You configure DNS and WINS services when you initially configure the system with the serial console. If necessary, you can use the System > Network > Overview page to modify the configuration. You can also use this page to configure a hostname.

The network services overview page also displays the node name (if the node belongs to a cluster), and the status and interface statistics for the internal port, external port, and management port.

To configure network services:

  1. Select System > Network > Overview to display the configuration page.
  2. Figure 148 shows the configuration page for Pulse Connect Secure.

  3. Complete the configuration as described in Table 104.
  4. Save your changes.
