Changed Network Settings
This form is displayed after changing the configuration of a network interface.
1
Connectivity Check
When changing the configuration of a network interface, the new settings are applied and a
connectivity check is performed.
The results of the connectivity check are displayed here.
• If DNS name resolution is not working, the system will be unable to perform many common
tasks. To resolve this issue, check the DNS server settings for the network interface. If you are
using DHCP, check that your DHCP server provides DNS server information, and enable this
option for the network interface. If you are assigning network addresses manually, check that
you have provided the correct DNS server addresses.
• If DNS name resolution is working, but Internet access is not, the system will not be able to
check for updates. To resolve this issue, check that the correct gateway address is configured.

Step 6: Set Server Time
Set options related to timekeeping for the server.
To ensure that authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) is performed correctly, it is
vital that the server maintains the correct time of day at all times. It is strongly recommended
that you configure one or more NTP servers to automatically synchronise the server's time.
1
Time Zone
Select the time zone in which your server is located.
2
NTP Server List
Enter the hostnames or IP addresses of NTP servers, one per line.
If available, it is recommended that you use an NTP server that is available on your local
network. This will improve timekeeping and will eliminate the need for additional Internet traffic
for the time server.
Copyright © 2007 amigopod Pty Ltd
Page 12
amigopod Documentation
To use a public NTP server, enter the following hostnames:
0.pool.ntp.org
1.pool.ntp.org
2.pool.ntp.org
You can also use NTP pool servers located in your region. For more information, refer to the
pool.ntp.org website.
3
NTP Sync
Check this box to enable NTP synchronization
4
Date & Time
Type in the current time and date. The recommended format is YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss.
Click the ... button to display a date/time picker for this field.
This field is not available if the Set server’s clock using NTP server field is checked.

modules of functionality that you have purchased.
Your reseller will have provided your subscription IDs to you at the time of purchase.
1
Subscription List
Enter one or more subscription IDs into this field, one per line.
A subscription ID consists of number and letter groups separated with hyphens. A typical
subscription ID might look like this: xn2ncr-gyjyd4-mxlx2s-fv9gcy-rwy7n6
You can also attach a description to each subscription ID. To do this, write the description and
follow it with the corresponding subscription ID in parentheses. For example: amigopod
Subscription (xn2ncr-gyjyd4-mxlx2s-fv9gcy-rwy7n6)
Incorrectly-formatted subscription IDs cannot be entered into this form. A form validation error is
displayed if an incorrect value is entered.

amigopod. The default operator login account is admin. Refer to Manage Operator Logins
for more details on configuring operator logins.
Visitor accounts are the user accounts for which the amigopod performs authentication,
authorization and accounting (AAA) functions. Visitor accounts are managed by operators
using the Guest Manager component of the software. Refer to Guest Manager for more
details on provisioning visitor accounts.
RADIUS Services is for system administrator use, and provides fine-grained control over the
AAA functions of the amigopod. Refer to RADIUS Services in the amigopod documentation
