"Of the six configuration options provided on the text console, you don't have to necessarily configure any, depending on your environment and use scenario. For instance, link aggregation combines multiple network connections in parallel; you may not want or need to do this.

"At the bottom of the text console is an address that you can use to access the web interface – something like http://192.168.2.6/. The web interface allows you to quickly and efficiently manage all aspects of FreeNAS, including configuring backups, adding data storage, and more.

"If the network address provided doesn't work, or if no address is provided, which could happen if your network cards aren't properly configured or detected, you must configure the network interfaces yourself. You can also do this if you wish to provide a custom address to your FreeNAS interface instead of using the default address FreeNAS acquires via DHCP. That procedure is simple enough; all you have to do is choose not to use DHCP, pick IPv4 or IPv6, and provide an IP address."
