A long list of configuration data appears on the screen.

Note: If your server has more than one network adapter, select the one that corresponds to a physical network adapter. View the Description field above each physical address. If there is more than one physical network adapter, it does not matter which one you use. Devices such as VPN adapters, PPP adapters, wireless or Bluetooth devices are not valid.
