  1. Localhost login: Log in through the CLI console;

Eth0 is the main interface, it is a dynamic WAN interface, used for internet access and device provisioning.

Eth1 is the management interface with the default IP for UTM configuration, it will be configured below.

Enter the commands:

Ifconfig eth1, and type "Enter".
route add default gw, and type "Enter".

After performing this procedure, the IP address will have been changed.
With the command below it is also possible to edit the IP address of the Blockbit UTM:

Enter the command blockbit> changeip.
Type "Enter".
