Configure Second Network Port

Note: The following assumes the first Network Interface is used for connecting the UCX to the internet, so no Default Gateway or DNS Server information is configured. If this second Network Interface is intended to be used for Internet connection, then it should be configured with all the parameters prior to configuring any information on the Ethernet 0 port.

Enable and configure the Second Network Interface Port and the DHCP Server on the UCX server for use as a Voice or Telephony LAN.

  1. Open the UCX Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Network
  3. From the left side column, select Network Parameters
  4. Select the Ethernet_1 port and verify the Interface Type is Static, IP address is and Network Mask is
  5. Press the Apply changes button if you made any changes.
  6. From the left side column, select DHCP Server.
  7. Click the Edit link for Ethernet 1 interface.
  8. Configure the following fields:
    • Starting IP Address =
    • Ending IP Address = (make sure the range does not include 200)
    • Lease Time = 1 day
    • Gateway = (IP address of the UCX Server Ethernet_1 port) 
  9. Click the Save button.
  10. Click the Start DHCP Server button to activate the DHCP server.
  11. The DHCP Server status will now show Active.
