(Optional) Configuring Multi-Subnet Management

(Optional) Configuring Multi-Subnet Management

By default, eSight can manage devices in one subnet and allows users to access eSight or the maintenance tool from the clients in one subnet. To manage devices in multiple subnets or access eSight from management clients in multiple subnets, enable multi-subnet management.


  • The eSight service is stopped. For details, see Stopping the eSight Service.
  • If IP phones are used onsite, ensure that all IP phones are deployed on the same network segment; otherwise, some functions of the IP phones will become abnormal.
  • If a remote terminal is used for installation, the remote terminal must provide a GUI, and the SUSE Linux operating system must be configured to support remote GUI login. For details, see How to Use the VNC to Remotely Log In to SUSE Linux.


  • After multi-subnet management is enabled, eSight device management protocols, entrance to the eSight client, and entrance to the maintenance tool are exposed to all subnets, resulting in security risks.

    Once being enabled, this function cannot be disabled. Therefore, before enabling this function, assess network security risks and ensure that network security reaches the required level.

  • The multi-subnet management function conflicts with the southbound and northbound service isolation function. Therefore, only one function can be enabled. If the southbound and northbound service isolation function is enabled, the multi-subnet management function cannot be enabled.
  • The eSight Infrastructure Manager, eSight Application Manager, and AR audio management function do not support multi-subnet management. If you need to use the management capability of these components, do not configure multi-subnet management.


  1. Log in to the eSight server as the ossuser user.
  2. Run the following commands to start the Multi-subnet Management Tool:

    > cd /eSight installation directory/mttools/tools

    > ./


    If the tool window cannot be displayed in the Linux operating system, see What Can I Do If the Tool Window Is Not Displayed in the Linux Operating System.

  3. Select the required function and click Modify.

    • eSight login via multiple subnets: enables access to eSight from management clients in multiple subnets.
    • Manage all subnet devices: enables eSight to manage devices in all subnets.
    • Multi-Subnet Access Maintenance Tool: enables access to the maintenance tool client from management clients in multiple subnets.

  4. Start eSight by referring to Starting the eSight Service.
