Abstract

A program is disclosed that simplifies the task of setting IP address information for ethernet ports on external storage controllers. These ports are used to configure and manage the external storage controllers. The tool removes the need to have a separate serial port available on the controller to set the IP address and at the same time simplifies the procedure for the system administrator.
