Multiplatform™ has the ability to manage a private network that only zero-client stations can utilize. This allows administrator to segregate zero-client network activity from site’s Intranet. Multiplatform™ supports two NICs and user can use:
- eth0(NIC 1) as intranet network; the default DHCP network.
- eth1(NIC 2) as private zero-client network (static one)
However, in order to make this feature functional, user will have to configure DHCP server manually:
- Open Terminal and switch to root
- Create file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 using any editor
- Edit the file and make the following changes:
- Reboot host PC/server DHCP Server should come online and you can assign stations to secondary ethernet accessible via Host PC/Server.
DEVICE=eth1 NAME=”Static eth1” TYPE=Ethernet ONBOOT=yes NM_CONTROLLED=yes NAME=”Static eth1” IPADDR=10.0.0.1 PREFIX=24
Note: You can use any private IPAddress network, provided that the IPAddress is real (does not end in 0 or 255) and PREFIX is either 16 or 24.
