How to verify IP settings from the command line

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

All Linux-based Endura Devices- All Versions

Cause

Need to verify IP settings.

Resolution

To reach the command line, either attach a monitor and keyboard directly to the device or SSH into the device from Endura Utilities.

To SSH into a device:

  1. Launch Endura Utilities, log in and press Search.
    note:  The default login credentials for Endura Utilities version 2.2 and below is [Username: Administrator | Password: configapp], however version 2.3 and greater removed that unique login credential requirement, and instead authenticates against the standard Endura Credentials. The default login in that case is [Username: admin | Password: admin].
  2. Locate the device in question
  3. Right click and choose SSH into [Username: root | Password: pel2899100]

 

Once at the command line type in ifconfig and hit Enter. The output should be similar to the image below. The IP settings are outlined in red.

To check the default gateway of a device, type in route and hit Enter. The output should be similar to the image below. The default gateway has been outlined in red. In this example it is 192.168.5.1. 

If the settings are inaccurate and need to be modified see LL#11678. Please note that if you are SSHd into the device, do not run the ifdown/ifup eth0 commands as you will lose communication with your device. These commands should only be run if you are directly connected to the device with a monitor and keyboard. Instead, reboot the device by typing reboot and hitting Enter.
