a dev:eth-2Add an Ethernet device (e.g. ETH-2).
a res:ip-2 subtype:lanAdd an “IP over LAN” resource (e.g. IP-2).
s p ip-2 lanres:eth-2Configure the ETH-2 as the IP-2 lower resource.
s p ip-2 ipadd: mask: the IP address and the mask.
s p ip-2 descr:LAN_2Configure the description of the IP resource.

On a working Abilis, a system restart is required to make the ETH-2 device and the IP-2 resource running.


The IP addresses of the Ethernet ports must belong to different LANs!
