Assuming that you have created the database and changed the configuration to active, it should just work.
You will need to post more details to how you have Zeroshell configured if you would like more help from the people in the forum. Give us things like what device you are instaling it on and how you are booting the Zeroshell install. For instance, is this a CDROM boot on standalone computer?
Also, how did you setup the configuration database, default gateway, IP addresses, etc.
The console interface is used mainly to get you setup to connect to the system via the web interface. You need to go into the web interface to set and store the configuration in the database, otherwise on reboot, it returns to the default settings. Try following the document link I listed above, and see if that gets you where you need to go. Then feel free to come back and ask additional questions.
