Specify Destination By

Top  Previous  Next

The Specify by drop-dox box allows you to select one of three methods to specify the VSP's destination:

 

IP-address: Select the destination of the VSP by specifying its IP address. When using this option, the IP address should be static and not be dynamically assigned by DHCP.
Host name: Specify the destination by DNS host name. The destination should be registered in DNS for this to work. Registration in DNS can be performed manually (using your DNS server administration interface) or using an interface between DHCP and DNS.
MAC-address: Select the destination by specifying its MAC address. This is useful for destinations which are located in the current (local) network segment, whose IP address may change (i.e, when the IP address is dynamically assigned by DHCP).
