Configuring IPv4 Settings

  1. Go to Control Panel > System > Network > IPv4.
  2. Identify the interface that you want to configure and then click .

    The TCP/IP - Property window opens.

  3. Select the network transfer speed of the interface.

    The default setting is Auto-negotiation, which means QES automatically detects and sets the transfer rate.

  4. Configure the DHCP settings.



    Obtain the IP address settings automatically via DHCP

    QES automatically obtains the IP address and network settings.

    Use static IP address

    You must specify the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.


    In QES 1.1.3 and later, you can specify a default gateway for an interface that is part of a VLAN.

  5. Enable jumbo frames.

    Jumbo Frames are Ethernet frames that are larger than 1500 bytes. They are designed to enhance Ethernet networking throughput, and to reduce CPU usage when transferring large files.

    QES uses standard Ethernet frames (1500 bytes) by default and supports the following jumbo frame sizes:

    • 4074

    • 7418

    • 9000

    • Using jumbo frames requires a network speed of 1000 Mbps or higher.

    • All connected network devices must enable jumbo frames and use the same MTU size.

    • In QES, the selected jumbo frame size applies to the size of the data payload only. It does not include overhead data, such as the Ethernet, VLAN, and IP headers. This means that actual packet size will be larger than the selected value. Ensure that the MTU size on all connected network devices is higher than the selected jumbo frame size.

  6. Click Apply.

    A confirmation message appears.

  7. Click OK.
