18.5: Manage Currently Available IPs

Manage Currently Available IPs

IP infrastructure management has been given a key importance while the programming and design implementation of the application, each user who holds the ESP version license of Mumara, will be offered two separate links to first create a list of all IPs available within the sending server(s), and a separate link to assign these IPs to the clients who subscribe to the package offered by the ESP.

The first step in this regard is to select the sending server. The first field offers a dropdown consisting of all currently available sending servers which you earlier have created using "Create Sending Server". Select the desired sending server and proceed.

Select Sending Server

After selecting the sending server, move to the next step of adding a list of sending IPs for selected server. 

Figure#18.5.2: Add Currently Available IPs for selected server

Create IP List

IP list

List all the IPs and the IP ranges in the text box as indicated by the arrow in the Figure#18.5.3 below.  You are required to add each IP separated with a comma in the box, the following figures show the model IP entries.

IPs of Separate Ranges

Figure#18.5.3: Adding the IPs from an IP range

IPs of Same Range

The above mentioned Figure#18.5.2 shows that the IPs are from two separate ranges, while the Figure#18.5.3 exemplifies that the IPs are from the same range starting from 1 to 25.  You need to mention the number of the IPs you have, with a hyphen, like the above mentioned figure shows 25 IPs from the range. Work this way to add IPs from the separate ranges, and IPs from a same range.

Implementing FDNS

FDNS stands for forward domain name server, and unlike RDNS the FDNS maps a domain name to an IP address. FDNS always resolves to an IP address, whereas the RDNS resolves to a domain name.

Once you add an IP address or range of IP address into the application, application provides you two fields underneath to conveniently configure the FDNS of the newly added IPs.

The first field is to input the information of the preferred selector, and the second is to provide the current domain in the server. Both the fields’ selector (prefix) and server together make the appropriate combination of the distinct name to be resolved to the particular IP.

For example, an IP address like is added into the system, you will put something convenient as selector/ prefix, it may be “Network”, Slot” or anything. And will provide your current server domain in the “Server” field to complete the structure of FDNS. After you submit your selection, the system will add and it will eventually resolve to For the range of IPs, application automatically keeps adding a number with the selector/ prefix, for each IP in the range. If it is is for, it will be for The process continues for the rest of the IPs you add. The following figure shows the position of “FDNS Selector” and “FDNS Domain” with arrows.

View IPs in the List

The table towards the left side of the page displays the list of current IPs in selected sending server.  Each IP that you will add in the box will start appearing in the left side view table.

Figure#18.5.5: View IPs Table

View Available IPs List

Table#18.5.1: View list of Added IPs


The first column of the view IP table shows the serial number of available records in the table. If the IPs listed in the table are more than 10, then the pagination will appear towards the bottom of the table, to let you view the records on the next pages.  


IP address which has earlier been added using the "IP List" box at the left side of the page.


Name of the server which the IP address belongs to. 


Refers to the domain where the IP address will resolve. IP resolves to the particular domain name. 


Refers to the opening port


The column shows the current status of the IP address, from “Available” it means that the IP is available to assign to a shared pool or to a client as a dedicated IP. “Shared” indicates that the IP has already been assigned to the shared pool of IPs, and from when it says “Dedicated” it means that the IP address was being assigned to a client.


The action column helps you to delete the IP, or an IP from the range.

Number of Records per Page

The default settings of the application are set to show ten records in the view table; however you have this ability to view more and even all IPs (records) on the first page of the table. The dropdown towards the top left side of the table allows you to select the number of records per page. See in the following figure.

Copy or Print View IPs Table

Use the copying options to copy the data in the columns of the table appears below. You can copy the table by using the “Copy” button and can paste it manually in a file, or can copy and save the complete table along with the columns to .CSV file, Excel or PDF format. Further you can get a print out of the complete table by clicking “Print”.

Search IPs within the Table

Use the search box to search particular IP from the table, the search function really helps you to quickly reach on the desired IPs by just putting the IP address or part of an IP address in the search box.  Typing some of the part of the IP address will sort the matching records according to the query in the search box, which helps you to search your desired IP from the sorted records easily.

Like the following figure shows the records with number 13. From total 25 entries, application has returned with 1 matching records according to the query in the search box.
