1.) Login to your root SSH with root user and run/copy paste the following commands + configuration.

3.) Create a file with the name your server is using, if your server have 
ifcfg-eth0 then you need to create a file with the name ifcfg-eth0:1 If your server has ifcfg-enp0s3 Then you need to create a file with name ifcfg-enp0s3:1   

Create the file with the following command

nano /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp0s3:1

Copy/Paste the following information and replace SERVER_IP with your own serverIP that you use with your radios.
