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  to add a [Static IP Address].
2. Type  to select [eth0 (Primary)].
3. Enter the following items to match your network environment, and type [y] to save the setting.
Enter the desired hostname
Enter DNS name or IP address of the NTP server
Enter the desired IP address
Enter your subnet mask
Enter the default gateway IP address
Enter the IP address of your primary DNS server
DNS 2 (Optional)
Enter the IP address of your secondary DNS server
4. After saving the setting, the service is automatically restarted.
