Configuring System IP Address for an AOS 10 VPNC

Each VPNC requires a unique system IP Address that is used by the gateway to communicate with network services such as VPN Virtual Private Network. VPN enables secure access to a corporate network when located remotely. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security, and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two., RADIUS Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service. An Industry-standard network access protocol for remote authentication. It allows authentication, authorization, and accounting of remote users who want to access network resources. , Syslog, TACACS+ Terminal Access Controller Access Control System+. TACACS+ provides separate authentication, authorization, and accounting services. It is derived from, but not backward compatible with, TACACS. , and SNMP Simple Network Management Protocol. SNMP is a TCP/IP standard protocol for managing devices on IP networks. Devices that typically support SNMP include routers, switches, servers, workstations, printers, modem racks, and more. It is used mostly in network management systems to monitor network-attached devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention. . The system IP addresses for your device can be assigned from the group using a pool or per device or bulk configuration upload.

To configure a System IP for a VPNC, complete the following steps:

  1. In the System tab, select one of the following options from Configuration approach:

    1. Define system IP address—If you select this option, enter the system IP address in the IPv4 Address field and enter a value in the Netmask field.
    2. Specify static IP addresses later—Select this option if you want to define the system IP address at a later stage.
    • These options will appear only when you are on-boarding the device for the first time.
    • The administrator must configure system IP address for the Aruba Gateway to become completely operational.
  2. Click Next.

    The Hostname page is displayed.

  3. Enter the Hostname and then click Next .
  4. Review the summary and click Finish.

    Finish button is disabled if there are any errors in the configuration. Resolve the errors to proceed to the next step.

  5. Click Continue to configure a LAN Local Area Network. A LAN is a network of connected devices within a distinct geographic area such as an office or a commercial establishment and share a common communications line or wireless link to a server. interface.
