You can use the SIS REM module to view, enable and disable, create, edit, and remove network interfaces.

What are network interfaces?

A network interface definition describes the properties of a network connection point. It includes:

  • a name, used as a unique identifier for the network interface

  • a type, either IN or SIP

  • zero or more configuration properties

  • the current state of the network interface, either ENABLED or DISABLED.

For details, see Managing Network Interfaces in the SIS Administration Guide.

To manage network interfaces:


From the SIS instance page, select Network Interfaces.

A list of Network Interfaces in the selected instance displays.
