The machine with Agent for vCloud has two network adapters: eth0 for the internal network and eth1 for the external network.
eth0 connects to the internal network where Acronis Backup Advanced for vCloud components communicate with VMware vCloud components. It also accepts incoming connections from SSH clients and Web browsers in the internal network.
eth1 accepts incoming connections from Web browsers in the external network. Make sure that your firewall, NAT router and other components of the network security system allow external connection to this adapter through ports 80 and 443.
By default, both adapters take network settings from a DHCP server. You can assign a static IP address to an adapter. For example, to ease port forwarding, you may want to assign a static IP address to the external adapter.
To change Agent for vCloud network settings
- Run the configure.sh command and choose the Change network settings scenario.
- Specify network settings for the eth0 adapter.
- To take the network settings from a DHCP server, press y.
- To specify the network settings with a static IP address, press n and then:
- Specify the static IP address for the adapter, such as: 192.168.0.10
- Specify the subnet mask for the adapter, such as: 255.255.0.0
- Specify the IP address of the default gateway for the adapter, such as: 192.168.0.1
- Specify network settings for the eth1 adapter.
- If you configured both adapters to use static IP addresses, specify the following:
- In DNS server 1, specify the IP address of the DNS server.
- [Optional] In DNS server 2, specify the IP address of the secondary DNS server.
The DNS server settings apply to both adapters.
If one of the adapters uses a DHCP server, the DNS server settings for both adapters are taken from that DHCP server.
If both adapters use DHCP servers, the settings for both adapters are taken from the DHCP server for eth1 (provided that the list of DNS servers there is nonempty).
