Network Configuration

A lot of this should be determined by your network administrator (which may be you). You are responsible for knowing and understanding the correct/proper settings to use in your network. Failure to use the correct settings may cause your XigmaNAS server to work slowly, improperly or not at all. You are responsible for knowing how to manage your network and knowing the correct settings in your environment. Incorrect settings in your network or XigmaNAS may adversely affect the performance of other network devices/services or prevent them from working at all, so make sure you understand your network before adding any new devices or services to it.

Network|Interface Management:

Your network adapters should have already been configured from the console after initial installation. Most often, the network is set for “auto”, and it detects the correct network card/driver. If not, you should be able to configure them on this screen.

Network|LAN Management:

On this screen you can configure:

  • Use of DHCP or Static IP configuration
  • Gateway, one of the most important settings. This should have been configured already during initial set-up.
  • Whether or not to use IPv6
  • MTU
  • Media Type (10baseT, 100baseTX, 1000baseTX, 1000baseSX, or autoselect)

System|General Setup:

Here you'll want to fill in:

  • Hostname
  • Domain
  • IPv4 and/or IPv6 DNS Servers (If using static IP, otherwise, these should be locked)

You'll also be able to modify (if you want):

  • The WebGUI default username
  • HTTP or HTTPS
  • WebGUI port
  • HTTPS certificate (if using HTTPS, otherwise not displayed) XigmaNAS will self-create one for you if you don't supply one.
  • Private Key (for SSH machine identity verification)
  • Language (defaults to English)
  • Time Zone and system time (or use of a time server)

System|General|Password:

Here, you can replace the default password.
