Network requirements

For better performance, we recommend Gigabit network environment (Server & Client NICs and Switches).

  1. Normal or advanced router is OK. It only affects the Internet speed. But most routers have built-in DHCP service. It will conflict with CCBoot DHCP service. You have to disable the DHCP service on the router.
  2. Switch should be 1Gbps speed. If the switch is a smart switch, you need to disable the "flow control" option in the switch settings. This option will reduce the diskless boot speed. We recommend CISCO and HUAWEI switches.
  3. CAT-5, CAT-5e and CAT-6 cable are all supported. But we recommend you to use CAT-5e and CAT-6 cable. CAT-5 cable has "far end crosstalk" problem and it will cause packet loss.
  4. Unmanaged network switch, "TP-link, Toto-link, Pro-link, D-Link" These network switches are plug in and play no configuration required.
  5. Routers with QoS function available, it will permit you to use bandwidth monitor to check for the download currently active on the specific system.
