Configuring network settings

After starting the VMware or Hyper-V virtual machine, some network settings are needed. By default netLD receives its IP address and configuration from DHCP. Because DHCP only gives temporary IP addresses, or in an environment without a DHCP server, add a static IP address and configuration.

* All network settings are keyboard operations.


1. Type [1] to add a [Static IP Address].


2. Type [1] to select [eth0 (Primary)].


3. Enter the following items to match your network environment, and type [y] to save the setting.
