IP Access connects a client to an arbitrary logical network configured on the Management LAN interface of a remote node.
The connecting client is assigned a native address on this network, and a layer 2 bridge is created between the client and the Management LAN – to provide access as if the client was physically connected at the node location.
By default, the address range assigned to clients is the second-to-last /29 subnet of the Management LAN, e.g.:
Management LAN subnet: 10.0.0.0/24 IP Access client subnet: 10.0.0.240/29 Client IP address range: 10.0.0.241 - 10.0.0.246
Management LAN subnet: 192.168.0.64/26 IP Access client subnet: 192.168.0.112/29 Client IP address range: 10.0.0.113 - 10.0.0.118
Note: For convenience, you can calculate these IP addresses using this online tool.
Client addresses are assigned round-robin.
Please ensure that the client IP address range is reserved and unused on the node's Management LAN network.
