Netsweeper is built on a Linux OS, and as such using the appropriate commands for this OS will allow for configuration of your Ethernet Devices.
For static IP configuration you need to edit the following files using a text editor such as vi.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/network as follows:
HOSTNAME=policyhost.yourdomain.com # hostname of your policy server
GATEWAY=192.168.1.254 # address to your gateway
DEVICE=eth0 # device you are using to intercept netsweeper traffic
HWADDR=00:30:48:56:A6:2E # make sure this is the right MAC address for your adapter
IPADDR=192.168.1.10 # desired static IP address
Edit /etc/resolv.conf and setup DNS servers:
search yourdomain.com # your company's domain
nameserver 192.168.1.254 # enter correct IP addresses for your nameservers
Finally, you need to restart the networking service, enter:
service network restart
Verifying Network Settings
The following commands can be used to verify your new static ip configuration for eth0:
Changing Deny Page Host
Lastly, If you configure your deny_page_host by IP and it is pointing to localhost, then you will need to change that in the policy server configuration.
