6. Interfaces Configuration#

As explained in the Virtual Machine Installation section, the first interface of the virtual machine is always used to manage the system and is called management, the rest are used to process the user traffic and are called ifX, where X - is the interface index.

The configuration of various types of interfaces is described in the corresponding sections:
