The JOAN on-premises server requires network connectivity. It will connect to the global JOAN Portal, which will still manage all of your devices. You’re not creating a full clone of our cloud infrastructure (yet). Based on feedback from customers we’ll go into phase two, in which the JOAN Portal will also be included.
- The virtual machine will require access to the internet. It will open connections to:
- master.joan.vnct.xyz, port 80 and 443, which provides GUI on your devices;
- firmware.visionect.com, port 8089, which provides firmware upgrades.
- You can run JOAN on your infrastructure by using a static IP address. Changing the IP of the on-premises server can be done in a couple of simple Linux commands:
- Login or ssh to your on-premises server using joan/joanaccess (username/password)
- Find the name of the network adapter whose IP address you would like to change. Usually this will be the bridged adapter. Find the name of the adapter by typing the following command into the terminal: ip addr
- Set the adapter’s static IP address by following the steps here.
- Restart the networking service: sudo service networking restart
- Check whether the static address has been setup for the selected network adapter: ip addrs
To change the IP of the On-Premises server use this simple Linux command:
sudo vim ../../etc/network/interfaces
