Setting Up a Static IP

Ethernet

-From the main menu, select Settings

  1. Select Network & Internet

  2. Select Ethernet

  3. Select IP Settings

  4. Select Static

-Enter the following required IP information:  

  1. The Static IP Address to be used by the CloudBox on the network.

  2. Valid IP Gateway IP Address for the network. 

  3. Valid Network Prefix, also known as the CIDR - This is a number from 0-32. The most common network prefix is 24, which is equivalent to the subnet mask 255.255.255.0.  To determine the network prefix from a subnet mask, see this article

  4. Valid DNS IP address. At least one DNS entry is required.

Important Note: Some CloudBoxes had an error that indicated the Gateway and DNS1 could be left empty but that was inaccurate as they are required (our apologies).
If you have the version, please make sure to put in the Gateway, the DNS1, and make sure the network prefix (CIDR) is a valid number (not a subnet mask).  The notes in red indicate the required information.
