Article Summary

By default, the CTERA Edge Filer is automatically assigned an IP address and DNS settings by the DHCP server. If the network uses static IP addresses instead of DHCP, you must configure the CTERA Edge Filer's network settings.

Note

If a DHCP server is not available, then, after one minute, the CTERA Edge Filer uses IP address 192.168.192.5.
You can apply a custom DNS configuration to each CTERA Edge Filer according to its DHCP class identifier.
