How to Change the Management IP Address

  • Last updated on

The management IP address is used to configure and administer the firewall via web interface. By default, the firewall uses as the management IP. You can change the management IP address and network to match your existing network.

Make sure you can connect to the firewall after changing the management IP address either by changing the IP address of the client PC to be in the same network and plugging the client PC into the new management port, or via an allow access rule allowing access from the network the client PC is in to the new management IP address.

Step 1. Change the Management IP Address and Network

  1. Go to NETWORK > IP Configuration.
  2. In the Management IP Configuration section, select a new Management Interface.
  3. Enter the new Management IP Address and Management Netmask.
  4. Select the Allow Ping check box if you want this interface to respond to this request.
  5. Click Save.

Step 2. (optional) Change or Add the Gateway Route

If the client from which you are connecting to the firewall is not in the same network as the firewall, you must create or change a gateway route to be able to access the firewall after changing the management IP address. You do not need to add a route if your client is in the same network as the new management IP address.

For more information, see How to Configure Gateway Routes.

Step 3. Perform a Network Activation

After you create or change basic network configurations such as routing, you must activate your new network configurations.

  1. Scroll to the top of the page.
  2. Click on the link in the warning message to activate the new network configuration.
