Connect Your OWC Jellyfish to the Internet

Learn how to connect your OWC Jellyfish to a switch for network or internet connectivity.

If you are looking to get OWC Jellyfish Remote Access up and running, connecting your OWC Jellyfish to the internet is the first step. Please follow the instructions below:

  1. Connect one of the ports of the OWC Jellyfish to your switch (sometimes a plug in the wall might be leading to that). OWC Jellyfish ports are always counted from top to bottom and left to right.
  2. Log into OWC Jellyfish Manager and go to the Networks page.
  3. Select the port you connected to the OWC Jellyfish (ex. Port 1).
  4. Set the MTU to 1500.
  5. Toggle on the DHCP button.
  6. Click the checkmark in the top right corner to save.
  7. Refresh the page.
  8. The OWC Jellyfish port will now have an automatically assigned IP address.
Please make sure you aren't connecting the IPMI port of the OWC Jellyfish. This port is not a standard network port. It is a standalone port and usually located near the USB port. See the picture bellow:
