Deploy Packages Using Network Addresses
The 'Network Addresses' method allows administrators to deploy packages to endpoint by specifying IP addresses, IP ranges or hostnames.
- If you haven't done so already, upload your packages as shown in step 2.1
- Select 'Network Addresses' in the 'Discovery Targets' window:
- Network Address: Enter the IP address, IP range or host name as shown below:
- IP – 10.0.0.1
- IP Range – 10.0.0.1-10.0.0.5
- IP Subnet – 10.0.0.0/24 or 10.0.0.0/255.255.255.0
- Click the 'Add' button
- Click 'Add More Targets' to add more endpoints
