DSM16 - Network Parameters

The Network Parameters page allows you to view/change the network configuration of your UCx Digital Station Module system.

To use the UCx Digital Station Module on your LAN, you may need to change its network configuration to match the target network.  You should update some or all of the following properties:

  • IP address and subnet mask
  • Host name
  • Default gateway
  • DNS server(s)

To change the IP address, subnet mask and DNS servers of your UCx Digital Station Module, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCx Digital Station Module Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Network
  3. From the Device list, select the interface of the UCx gateway to edit by clicking the device name.  In the Digital Station Module there is only a single interface, Ethernet 0.

  4. If you want the UCx Digital Station Module to obtain its IP address dynamically from your DHCP server:
    • Select the DHCP option (default setting, as above)
  5. ​If you want the UCx Digital Station Module to use a static IP address:
    • Select the Static option
    • Enter the IP Address (example above is 192.168.1.202)
    • Enter the Network Mask (default is blank, example above is 255.255.255.0)
    • Enter the Primary DNS (default is blank, example above is 192.168.1.254) - If your router can relay DNS requests, specify the IP address of your router in the Primary DNS field.  Otherwise, enter the IP address of your preferred DNS server.
    • Optionally enter the Secondary DNS
  6. Press the Apply Changes button
  7. Confirm that you want to change the network parameters.  If you changed the IP address of the interface while using the same interface to access the Web-based Configuration Utility, you must reopen it using the new IP address.
