Enter your choice:
Choose an item by entering the letter on the left of the item.
- T) Thunderstone information
will display information about the Search Appliance software version,
- N) Network and system information
will display information about the network and firewall settings.
- S) Setup network
will prompt for network info and change settings accordingly.
Entering "q" for any prompt will abandon changes and return to the menu.
- Use DHCP?(y/n/q)
Enter "y" to get IP information automatically from DHCP and
not ask further questions. Enter "n" to specify the IP information
- Enter IP address or q:
Enter the IP address in dotted-decimal form: nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn
- Enter net mask, blank, or q:
Enter the IP netmask in dotted-decimal form: nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn
- Enter gateway, blank, or q:
Enter the network gateway IP address in dotted-decimal form:
- Primary nameserver, blank, or q:
Enter the IP of the primary nameserver in dotted-decimal form:
- Secondary nameserver, blank, or q:
Leave blank for no secondary nameserver. Or enter the IP of the
secondary nameserver in dotted-decimal form: nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn
- Enter hostname, blank, or q:
Enter the host name of the Search Appliance. Ideally this will match
whatever your DNS has for the assigned IP. At the very least
it should be a fully qualified name such as "app.mydomain.com"
so that email notifications etc. can work. It should never be
a single word like "mysearch" as that can delay the boot process.
- Enter DNS Domain Name, blank, or q:
Enter the domain to use on unqualified host names, such "mydomain.com".
Or leave blank to prevent unqualified names from resolving.
- F) drop Firewall/NAT (Allow all network access)
will drop all firewall ant NAT rules that you may have setup
using the webmin web interface. It will also permanently delete
the firewall and NAT configs so they will not come back on upon boot.
This is most useful when you've
accidentally created a firewall configuration that locks you
out of the admin interface.
- A) drop Admin restrictions (HTTPS,IP,Cipher requirements)
will remove all system-wide settings that restrict the web admin
interface. This is useful if you've accidentally created a config
that locks you out of the admin interface. This is permanent. Any
desired restrictions will have to be re-added from the web interface.
- I) dIagnostics
will enter a sub-menu of network diagnostics as follows.
