IPv4 configuration

Method by which an interface is assigned an IPv4 address.

Static

Specify the IP address.

IPv4/Netmask
IPv4 address and subnet mask.
Gateway detail
Gateway through which traffic is to be routed.

PPPoE

Obtain an IP address from a PPPoE server.

Preferred IP
Preferred IP address for the PPPoE connection. Many internet service providers assign a static IP address to PPPoE connections. The firewall allows you to bind the static IP address to the PPPoE connection.
Note An address other than the preferred IP address may be assigned to the PPPoE connection, depending on the PPPoE server configuration.
Gateway detail
Gateway through which traffic is to be routed.
User name
PPPoE account user name.
Password
PPPoE account password.
Access concentrator/service name
Access concentrator and service name. The firewall initiates only those sessions with the access concentrator that can provide the specified service.
LCP echo interval
Time, in seconds, that the system must wait before it sends an echo request to check whether the link is alive. Once an attempt is made, the firewall waits for the defined time interval before the next attempt is made.
LCP failure
Number of attempts (echo requests) to be made. Once the specified number of attempts are made without receiving a response from the client, the firewall disconnects the PPPoE connection.
Schedule time for reconnect
The address assigned to a PPPoE connection, whether dynamic or static (preferred), can have a predefined validity period. Once the validity expires, the PPPoE connection is terminated and is reconnected. To prevent reconnection during working hours, enable the PPPoE reconnect schedule.
Note On reconnection, an address other than the preferred IP address (if specified) may be assigned to the PPPoE connection.

DHCP

Obtain an IP address from a DHCP server.

Gateway detail
Gateway through which traffic is to be routed.
