CA API Dev Portal 4.2 Network Connectivity Help

Working through the DevPortal 4.2 installation document and running into some issues.

(Prepare your Environment - CA API Developer Portal - 4.2 - CA Technologies Documentation )


My corporate VM team provisioned the VM using the OVA file specified in the documentation.  My question is towards the end of this list:


#19 states to Configure your network, NTP, or other configuration as needed.  


When I installed the API Gateway 9.2, there were detailed instructions on how to go in and setup network connectivity for the VMs but I am not seeing any of that within this documentation.


Can anyone provide these details so that I can get this VM connected to my network and to the point where I can configure the product?
