Network Protocol

Each server should

have two network interface cards

(NIC)
:



The
first

NIC

will be

used for

connecting

the WebSAMS server
to
the
network switch in the WebSAMS segment
. For this network connection,

o
nly install TCP/IP network protocol

and
choose the obtaining of
IP
address and

DNS server address automatically

as the default
.



The
second NIC is reserved
for connecting
the WebSAMS server
to the
network
-
attached storage device

(NAS)
when applicable

(Physically a
crossover UTP cable may be necessary for making the direct connection
between the server and the NAS).



The NAS device and the second NIC should form a private segment. A

192.168.1.X


scheme with subnet mask of

255.255.255.0

segment is recommended.

install
ation of only

the
TCP/
IP
network protocol

set the fixed IP

address

to

192.168.1.x


where x

This

fixed IP
address
should be
different from that of the NAS device.

For example, assuming

the fixed IP

address of the NAS device
is

192.168.1.1

, the IP address of the second NIC can be set to

192.168.1.2

.

The DNS server address
