Edit network and communication settings
Unomaly needs to have the correct communication and network ports available to receive data from systems and to send email notification to users.
You need to use the console menu to change the network settings on a Unomaly instance. Network settings include: the IP address of the instance, the netmask, gateway, DNS, and proxy.
1. Use SSH to log into the Unomaly instance's console menu. See "The Unomaly console menu".
2. Choose option 1 to Set network configuration.
Note: If you change the IP address of the instance, your Unomaly license will no longer be valid for the instance. Contact Sales@unomaly for a new license.
See the "General communication settings" for the list of Unomaly's communication ports.
After you enable the network and communications settings, we recommend that you configure the email server on your Unomaly instance. You instance relies on this email server to send email notifications when there are issues with the deployment or when there are alerts on monitored systems, and to verify new user accounts that get created.
Follow these instructions to add your own email server to the Unomaly instance:
1. In the Unomaly interface's Settings > Email view, set the SMTP server name and port number.
- The server name is the IP address or host name of the email server. We recommend that the server have restricted (internal) access.
- The port number should be 25.
2. (Optional) If your server requires Authentication, set the username and password.
3. Set the Sender email address to use for outbound emails. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Save your changes.
|TCP/514, UDP/514||Syslog (If logs are sent directly from systems.)|
|TCP/5514, UDP/5514||Syslog (If logs are sent from a log aggregator.)|
|TCP/443||HTTPS web interface access|
|TCP/22||SSH console access|
|UDP/123||NTP (Either to internet or to internal NTP servers.)|
|UDP/53||DNS (Either to internet or to internal DNS servers. Internal is preferred due to reverse DNS lookups in certain scenarios.)|
|TCP/25||SMTP (To send email. Either Internet or to configured internal SMTP servers. Internal is preferred for stability reasons.)|
|TCP/443||This port enables upgrading by downloading and installing directly through the SSH console menu. This is optional, upgrades can be done by other means as well.|
