Check the connectivity of Vyatta NOS and the host system
How to check that you can reach Vyatta NOS over the local network. A simple method in which you create an Ethernet interface on the system and then ping this interface from another host on the network.
In this example, we use addresses as follows:
- Network address:
- IP address of the interface:
You should of course substitute addresses that are appropriate for your specific environment.
- At the command prompt, enter these commands.
user@system:~$ configure user@system# set interfaces dataplane dp0sN address 192.168.1.81/24 user@system# commit user@system# save user@system# exit user@system:~$
- From another host on the same subnet, use the command prompt to ping the interface to ensure that it is active.
ping 192.168.1.81If the response to the command shows replies from the interface then your system is installed and accessible on your network. Otherwise, you will need to investigate further — please see our more detailed guides, as appropriate.
