If available, please work with your network or IT administrator in connecting your JPS product to your network. They will know your actual network environment versus the generalizations made below.
Depending on the JPS product you are working with, there are multiple network settings that could need to be set. These can include:
IP Address: This is a number that identifies the device on a network. It must be unique to that network (you cannot have multiple devices on the same network with the same IP address). The address is a group of 4 numbers, separated by a period, each number ranging from 0 to 255. For example, 192.168.1.200 is an IP address.
Subnet Mask: This is a number that identifies the size of the network, or the number of available IP addresses in a network. This number is usually 255.255.255.0, but may vary if your network is intentionally larger or smaller than usual.
Gateway: This is the IP address of the router on the network. Without a gateway address, the network device will not know how to get to the internet. That said, this is only required on JPS products that require internet access.
DNS (1, 2, and 3): DNS is short for "Domain Name Server". These are where you put in the IP addresses of domain name servers that you trust. These servers are how network devices connecting to the internet know how to find, for example, https://jps.com. (The internet is based off of IP addresses (numbers), and does not work off of words/names. DNS lets us turn names into IP addresses so we can navigate the internet easier.) If you are using any resource type that expects you to connect to a web address (like https://jps.com) then you must have at least one DNS entered. Commonly used public DNS addresses include 126.96.36.199 (Cloudflare DNS), 188.8.131.52 (Google DNS), and 184.108.40.206 (OpenDNS).
