The Setup–>Appliance section allows you view and update the network details of your jetNEXUS ALB-X load balancer. It is organised into the following sections.
Here you can add, remove and update the adapter settings.
Double click to see the physical adapters installed on your appliance. Choose an adapter from the list
Double click to add the VLAN ID for the adapter. A VLAN is a Virtual Local Area Network which creates a distinct broadcast domain. A VLAN has the same attributes as physical LAN but it allows for end stations to be grouped together more easily if they are not on the same network switch
Double click to add the IP address associated with the adapter interface. You can add multiple IP addresses to the same interface. This should be an IPv4 32-bit number in quad dotted decimal notation. Example: 192.168.101.2
Double click to add the subnet mask assigned to the adapter interface. This should be an IPv4 32-bit number in quad dotted decimal notation. Example: 255.255.255.0
Add a gateway for the interface. When this is added the ALB-X will set-up a simply policy that will allow connections initiated from this interface to be returned via this interface to the gateway router specified. This allows the ALB-X to be installed in more complex networking environments without the hassle of manually configuring complex policy based routing
Double click to add a description for your adapter. Example: Public Interface. Note: The ALB-X will automatically name the first interface Green Side, the second interface Red Side and the third interface Side 3 etc. Please feel free to change these naming conventions to your own choice
Double click the column then tick the box to assign the interface as the management address for the Graphical User Interface Web Console. Please be very careful when changing the interface that Web Console will listen on. You will need to have the correct routing set up or be in the same subnet as the new interface in order to reach the Web Console after the change. The only way to change this back is to access the command line and issue the set greenside command. This will delete all interfaces except for eth0
Add in a name for your jetNEXUS ALB-X appliance. Please note that this cannot be changed if there are more than 1 member in the Cluster. Please see Clustering
Add in the IPv4 address of your DNS server
Advanced Network Setting:
Tick the box to enable. This is a means to improve efficiency of TCP/IP networks by reducing the number of packets that need to be sent over the network
