Configuring the Network Settings at the System Console


Each type of Vidyo server (VidyoPortal, VidyoRouter, VidyoGateway, or VidyoReplay) has a different default IP address and is necessary to perform the steps in this section:

  • VidyoPortal:
  • VidyoRouter:168.1.105 (optional external component)
  • VidyoGateway: (optional external component)
  • VidyoReplay: (optional external component)


The basic network setup for each type of Vidyo server is basically the same. You must perform a network setup for each of your Vidyo servers.


To configure the network settings at the System Console:

  1. Log in to the System Console.

    For more information, see Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.

    The following illustrations show the System Console after you have logged in using a keyboard and VGA monitor plugged directly into the VidyoPortal.

  2. Enter 1 to configure IP Address.

  3. Press the Enter key.

  4. Enter 1 to select the PRODUCTION INTERFACE option or 2 to select the MANAGEMENT INTERFACE option depending on which one contains the IP you want to configure.

  5. Press the Enter key.


    The Management Interface should not be used to transfer any media.
    For more information, see the Configuring RADIUS section.


  6. Enter 1 to select the IPv4 (Static) option to set the server IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and MAC addresses, hostname, domain name, and FQDN.

  7. Press the Enter key on your keyboard after providing each value.

  8. Enter y and press the Enter key after you have entered the required information.


    Unless you’re using the Hot Standby software option, the Native FQDN and Public FQDN should be the same.

    If you are using the Hot Standby software option, the Native FQDN will be the Native FQDN of the Active or Standby VidyoPortal and the Public FQDN will be the same as the Cluster FQDN. For more information, see Applying the system license keys to your system and the Hot Standby section.

    The Public FQDN provided here is the same one you use when requesting your license keys from Vidyo Support. For more information, see Requesting system licenses and applying system license keys and Applying the system license keys to your system.


  9. Enter 2 to configure DNS Nameserver to set the fully qualified domain name (if it exists) for the VidyoPortal and the IP addresses of the DNS servers:

    • Enter two DNS server IP addresses.
      If you have only one DNS server, use the same one twice.


    • Enter y and press the Enter key once you have entered the required information.
      The System Console main menu displays.

  10. Enter the remaining network settings for the server as needed, confirming by typing y and pressing Enter after entering each prompt:

    • Enter 3 to configure NTP Time Servers to set the NTP (Network Time Protocol) time server.
    • Enter 4 to configure Time Zone to specify the time zone you are working in.
    • Enter 5 to configure Ethernet Options to set the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) size if necessary.

  11. Enter 14 to restart the server.

  12. Press the Enter key.

    When the server restarts, it will have the new network settings. Be sure to record your network settings, as you will need them for further configuration of your system.
