CentOS 6 Network Configuration

This article is maintained for users on versions 10 through 18. The operating system on version 19 offers differing network configuration tools.

Prep

Before you start:

  • Refer to the CentOS installation document if you have not installed CentOS on your server.
  • Powercode billing servers need to be externally accessible on a number of portsor Powercode functions will not work. These Include: 80, 81, 443, 444, 446, 447 and your desired ssh port.  If you make use of FTP backups confirm the proper port is available.

Log in with the username root and whatever password was set up during CentOS installation either on the server itself or via SSH.

Configure the network by entering:

system-config-network-tui

This will take you to CentOS GUI configuration interface. You will need to set the device and DNS to be compatible with Powercode and accessible. First select Device configuration and the eth0 connection.

Verify your Network Configuration here. Make sure there is an asterisk next to On Boot. Tab over to Save and select DNS configuration.

The DNS should be configured to either the Google servers (pictured above) or the customer’s chosen DNS server. Enter Save and Quit.

If you are not aware of the server’s IP address enter:

ifconfig

Note the server IP address so users and Powercode Support can SSH in.

Take a backup or snapshot of the server and contact powercode support to begin the installation process.
