ScopTEL DHCP Server

ScopTEL -DHCP Server Configuration

Console - ifconfig

A newly installed server uses DHCP to get an IP address from a DHCP server on the network so make sure the public network interface is connected to the network so the server can get an IP address.
Before you can login to the server you must know the IP address of at least one physical interface.
From the Linux console login prompt, enter username ‘root’ omitting any quotation marks.
From the password prompt enter the default root password ‘scopserv’ omitting any quotation marks.
Once you are successfully logged as root type the command ‘ifconfig’ to determine at least one eth interface .
In this example the eth0 IP address is Also notice that the HWaddr is the MAC address of the eth0 interface.

Console – nmtui

If there is no DHCP server on the network the server will not get an IP address.
Using the command ‘nmtui’ omitting any quotes an IP address can be set statically and then used to login to the GUI.
