    Configuring an Ethernet Interface with Static Routes (CTP Menu)

    Configure an Ethernet interface on a network that is different from the default Ethernet interface, and add static routes to the interface configuration. You can configure metric for static routes to specify priority of the routes on the subnet.

    You must reboot the CTP device when you finish this configuration procedure.

    To configure static routes for Ethernet interfaces using the CTP Menu:

    1. From the Main menu, select 5) Node Operations.
    2. Select 3) Configure network settings.
    3. Select 2) IPv4 Configuration or 3) IPv6 Configuration.
    4. Follow the onscreen instructions to select a second Ethernet interface to activate on boot, and configure the options as described in Table 1.

    Table 1: Ethernet Parameter Settings in the CTP Menu

    FieldFunctionYour Action

    Please input the ip/ipv6

    Specifies the IP address of the Ethernet interface.

    Enter an IP address.

    Please input the netmask

    For IPv4 interfaces, specifies the network mask.

    Enter the network mask.

    Please input the mtu in bytes

    Specifies the maximum transmission unit (MTU) for the Ethernet interface.

    For IPv4 networks, enter a number from 64 through 1500.

    For IPv6 networks, enter a number of at least 1280.

    Add route to interface eth

    Specifies whether or not to add static routes to the Ethernet configuration.

    Specify yes.

    How many routes would you like to add to eth0?

    Specifies the number of static routes to add to your Ethernet interface configuration.

    Enter a number between 0 and 3.

    Please input the network

    Specifies the IP address of the static route to the next-hop gateway.

    Enter an IP address.

    Please input the number of bits in the netmask

    For IPv4 networks, specifies the IP mask of the Ethernet interface.

    Enter an IP mask.

    Please input the gateway

    Specifies the IP address of the next-hop gateway (the router).

    Enter an IP address.

    Please input the metric for this route, -1 for no metric

    Specifies the value for metric for the route.

    Enter -1 for no metric. If another route with a metric value between 1 and 256 is configured on the same subnet, then the route with no metric takes precedence.

    Enter a value between 1 and 256 to enable metric.
