What happens here?

Depending on the subnet of your hardware XEOX will replace the variables $nasip and $naspublicpath with configuration values from your subnet configuration.

Following rules are applied:

  • If no configuration was found, XEOX will replace the variable with an empty string ""

  • IP addresses from WIRED network cards are preferred

  • XEOX uses the best matching subnet containing the variable

    • e.g. for ip 192.168.11.166

    • XEOX prefers configurations in 192.168.11.0/24 versus 192.168.0.0/12
