Network interfaces are part of the network and system configuration required for the ALOHA appliance.

Autonegotiation

Autonegotiation is an Ethernet procedure by which two connected devices choose common transmission parameters, such as speed, duplex mode, and flow control.

By default, autonegotiation is enabled on the ALOHA.

Enable/disable autonegotiation

  2. Open the Services tab.

  3. Click Setup setup_icon on the line corresponding to the network interface you want to manage.

  4. Add, remove, or edit the auto directive using the syntax below:
