  2. If you are adding a new network alias rule, provide a name up to 32 characters. The network group alias name always starts with a dollar sign ($).
  3. Define the following network group alias parameters:


    Specify the Host IP address for up to eight IP addresses supporting network aliasing. Select the down arrow to add the IP address to the table.


    Specify the netmask for up to eight IP addresses supporting network aliasing. Subnets can improve network security and performance by organizing hosts into logical groups. Applying the subnet mask to an IP address separates the address into a host address and an extended network address. Select the down arrow to add the mask to the table.

  4. Select + Add Row, in the Range table to specify the Start IP address and End IP address for the alias range, or double-click on an existing alias range entry to edit it.
  5. Select OK when completed to update the network group alias settings.

    Select Reset to revert the screen to its last saved configuration.p
