WAN Settings

Configuration of network interfaces which are used for incoming connections.

  • Certificate
    To use the secured TLS or MTLS network protocols, you will need a server certificate. This certificate must have been signed by a certification authority. Click on the "Certificate..." button to open a window for selecting a certificate. Then, select the appropriate certificate and confirm it by clicking the OK button. Information about the selected server certificate will then be displayed.

  • Use other public address
    Activates, or deactivates, the use of the public IP address. This feature should be activated, when your server has connected with the public Internet through Network Address Translation (NAT) routing.

    • Port / IP
      Displays the port number and the IP address that should be sued as the public address. If you do not know your public address, click the Detect IP Address button. It will discover the appropriate IP address and make the corresponding entry.

    • Detect IP
      Click this button when you want the system to determine the IP address automatically for public address usage.

Network interfaces

List of the network interfaces

Lists the network interfaces which are used for incoming connections. Every network interface has certain properties and additional information which is summarised in the index. The following properties of a network interface are displayed:

  • Activate
    Activates or deactivates the network interface. You can carry out this setting directly. Click on the checkbox to activate the network interface. Click again on the checkbox to deactivate the network interface. If the network interface is deactivated, the checkbox is empty.

  • IP
    Displays the IP address for the network interface. Together with the indicated port number, this setting uniquely identifies the interface. To change the IP address for the network interface, select the interface and then click on the Properties...button.

  • Port
    Displays the port number for the network interface. The port number and IP address identify the interface uniquely. To change the port number for the network interface, select the interface and then click Properties... button.

  • Log
    Displays the transport protocol of the network interface. Different protocols for network interfaces can be selected.
    - UDP (User Datagram Protokoll)
    - TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)
    - TLS (Transport Layer Security)
    - MTLS (Mutual Transport Layer Security)

    To change the type of protocol for a network interface, select the interface and then click on the Properties... button. For secured network protocols, you will also require a server certificate for using secured network interfaces. Further information regarding certificates can be found under Server Certificates.

  • Status
    Displays the status of the network interface. You are not able to edit this design.

Configuration of network interfaces

You can configure the list of network interfaces. Click the Add... button to add another network interface to the list. Click the Delete button to remove one or more network interfaces for your list. Click the Properties... button to display the properties for the network interface and to make adjustments to that network interface.

  • Add...
    Click this button to add another network interface to the list. A new dialog will be opened, from which you can set the properties for the new network interface. Further information about network interface properties and how to set them can be found in the Network Interface List section.

  • Remove
    Click on this button to remove network interfaces from your list. You can only do this if at least one network interface was marked on the list. A message dialog will then request that you confirm the removal of the network interface you selected. Click the OK button to confirm the deletion. Click the Cancel button to stop the removal process.

  • Properties...
    Click on this button to display the properties and details of a network interface. You must select only one network interface on the list. You can also modify the network interface properties. Further information about network interface properites and how to adjust them (as needed) can be found in the Network Interface List section.

To accept the new settings please press the button "OK". Press the button "Cancel" to discard the settings.
