Now, change the SSL312's IP address to an open IP address on your local network and set the subnet mask so that the device is added to your existing home network. To do this, enter the open IP address in the IP Address field and the subnet mask in the Subnet Mask field in the Ethernet Port 1 area under the Interfaces section. Refer to Figure 6. For my device, I changed the IP address to 192.168.0.25 and set the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0.

To define the default network route, select Static Routes. In the Default Gateway Address field, enter the gateway address used by your local network to access the internet. Refer to Figure 7. For my device, I entered the default gateway as 192.168.0.1.

To set the time zone, date, and time, click the Date and Time link underneath the System Configuration heading. It is important that the time and date are correct since they will appear in the log files. When the Date and Time screen appears, select your time zone. Refer to Figure 9. Then, click Use Network Time Protocol (NTP) to ensure that the device uses the NTP server and the time zone you selected to set the time and date; thereby, overriding any manual time setting configurations.
