The Network page displays your current network settings and enables those settings to be modified. On this page, you can identify your DNS servers and WINS
servers and how your system's IP address is determined. Most system IP addresses and other network settings can normally be configured automatically.
Manually Configuring Your Network
If you are comfortable with network technology and want to configure the network, refer to Manually Configuring the Network.
Enabling Jumbo Frames for Each NIC
You can enable jumbo frames for each NIC in your Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 by expanding the Information section for a NIC and selecting a jumbo frame
size from the Jumbo Frame drop-down menu. Valid jumbo frame sizes are 4,000 or 9,000 bytes. If you do not want jumbo frame support, select None from
the Jumbo Frame drop-down menu. Jumbo frame support is useful for transferring large files, such as multimedia files, over a network. Jumbo frame support
increases transfer speed by placing large files in fewer data packets. It also reduces the demand on the device hardware by having the CPU process more data
in fewer data packets.
Jumbo frame support should only be enabled if you are sure your network is jumbo-frame compatible and all network devices have been configured to support
jumbo frames. It is recommended that you confirm all network interface cards (NICs) are configured to support jumbo frames before enabling this feature.
