IGEL OS thin client – 2 network interface troubleshooting


In IGEL thin client, I configured to 2 network interface. First one is to my terminal where I am in the same network with my UMS. Then, I added a second one which is a local area network. Once I do that, I lost the connection to UMS. Something broke the network connection.

Then, I access the terminal on VSphere and remove the Second Network adapter. Reboot the Thin Client, it works again.

Is there anything I miss out in the Second Network Adapter configuration that causing this ? Or it could be settings in VMWare ? or IGEL Routing ? Have been troubleshooting but a bit puzzle with the outcome… Any thoughts ?


Would need to setup the Network > LAN interfaces > Interface 1 / 2 / 3 … Then setup Network > Routing > Route 1 / 2 / 3.

Maybe these links would provide some background…

I’d suspect routing in general. Have you confirmed connectivity to and from the UMS on the second adapters subnet? Maybe there’s a firewall in the mix? Is your profile pointing the device to the UMS based on an IP address or host name?


What do you want to achieve by having 2 interfaces, if I may ask?


I would like to allow my thin client to access the visualisation application (HMI) in the production floor. Basically from IGEL thin client, I connect to the production floor machine using VNC. The first network adapter is in Layer 3 and the second one connects to a network in Layer 2.

@member thanks for the link. Very informative. Got to digest the write up.

Hi @member , the settings mentioned can be configure via IGEL Routing ? kb.igel.com/igelos-11.04/en/routing-32871459.html


yes… you should also be able to do via custom commands via — kb.igel.com/igelos-11.04/en/network-32871542.html
