GSP subnet mask

hi, friends,

I changed my subnet mask from class C to class B recently by modifying /etc/rc.config.d/netconf, and I have confirm my changes by restarting server and perform print_manifest, the manifest.info show new subnet mask. But somehow the subnet mask in GSP still showing old subnet mask,

is anyone could help to explain this and guide me how to change subnet mask in GSP ?

Re: GSP subnet mask

Your regular lan, controlled by /etc/rc.config.d/netconf is completely and totally unrelated to your GSP configuration.

From you console, type CTRL-B to get to the GSP and log into it. Since you found the information and displayed it you should already be there and be familiar with some of the commands. You probably used 'LS' to display the information. To modify the information you need to use 'LC'.

You can easily find this by typing 'HE' or HELP at the GSP prompt. You can then get a list of commands available to you. A quick perusal of those commands will lead you to the command needed to modify the GSP LAN configuration.

Re: GSP subnet mask


The GSP is a totally independent device, with its own network interface and operating system.

It's important to understand that its not controlled at all by /etc/rc.config.d/netconf settings.

You didn't see anything in there referring to the GSP.

About the only thing the OS can do to a GSP card is reset it.

Different GSP/MP cards vary model to model, but connecting to the console and doing the ctrl-b thing will generally get you to the help screen as JRF says.
