The Initial Setup process sets the basic configuration for the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system and is only required the first time you setup the system. After completing this process, you can start using and configuring the system remotely using a web browser.
The Initial Setup screen will present different information depending whether or not your Sonus SBC 1000/2000 is equipped with an Application Solution Module. The screen below is shown for an Sonus SBC 1000/2000 with an installed ASM. If the SBC you are setting up does not have an ASM, certain fields are unavailable. These are noted below.
Initial Setup Screen (Sonus SBC 1000/2000 with built-in ASM)
Enter the Host Name for the Sonus SBC 1000/2000. This is typically useful when you plan to join Sonus SBC 1000/2000 to a domain.
Sets how the SBC acquires the IP address information. Valid entries: Static or Dynamic. Static enables you to enter an IP address manually. Dynamic acquires the interface's IP configuration dynamically from a reachable DHCP server.
Internet Domain Name
Typically useful if the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system resides on a network that uses an internet domain name (such as sonus.net). This field is displayed only when Static is selected from the Network Configuration field.
IPv4 Address and Network Mask
Enter an IP address and a Network Mask. The IP address in this field will be configured onto Ethernet Port #1 on the Sonus SBC 2000. This field will not be displayed if the Network Configuration option is set to Static.
ASM IP Configuration
In order for the ASM to operate, it must also be configured with an IP address, and it must be on the same IP subnet as the IP address configured above. Your options to configure an ASM IP are as follows:
- DHCP Enabled: Determines how the ASM configures its network interface. When set to Yes, it enables the ASM to automatically configure its network interface from the DHCP server reachable via the Sonus SBC 2000's Ethernet Port #1. Ensure that the IP address is on the same subnet as those provided by your DHCP server. When set to No, the IPV4 Address field is displayed.
- IPv4 Address. Ensure you enter an IP address that is different than the one configured above. The Netmask entered above applies to both the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system and the ASM.
These fields are displayed only when the SBC has an ASM and Static is selected from the Network Configuration field.
Default IP Route
If you plan to use a gateway to route IP traffic from the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system, set Configure Default Route to Yes and specify a Gateway IP address. This field is displayed only when Static is selected from the Network Configuration field.
Domain Name System (DNS)
If you plan to use host names for routing network traffic from the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system, set Use Primary DNS to Yes and provide a Primary DNS IP address. Optionally, set the Use Secondary DNS to Yes and provide a Secondary DNS IP address. These fields are displayed only when Static is selected from the Network Configuration field.
Local Administrative User
Configure a local Administrative user by entering a Username and Password.
Once you have clicked OK, you may connect the Sonus SBC 2000 to your network using Ethernet Port 1. The Sonus SBC 1000/2000 will now be reachable on its new IP address - you may browse to it now.
