About the Secure Web Gateway Appliance Hardware Models

Several hardware models are available to serve as a platform for installing the appliance software and running Secure Web Gateway as a physical appliance.

Each model has a short name that begins with WBG for Web Gateway and is followed by a number. The model generation is indicated by a letter at the end of the name. The following models are available:

  • WBG-4500-C
  • WBG-5000-C
  • WBG-5500-C
  • WBG-4500-D
  • WBG-5000-D
  • WBG-5500-D
  • WBG-4500-E
  • WBG-5000-E and E2
  • WBG-5500-E and E2
  • WBG-5000-F
  • WBG-5500-F

The model name can also be found on a label on top of the hardware chassis. The serial number of an appliance hardware box can be retrieved using a command run on a system console.

Model Name on the User Interface

When you are running Secure Web Gateway as a physical appliance on a hardware platform, you can view the model name on the user interface under Configuration > Appliances.

The appliance you are currently working on is displayed in a tree structure with its system settings. When the appliance is connected to others in a cluster, these are also displayed.

Each appliance has an ID, which is also shown, consisting of mwgappl as prefix and a number.

Retrieving the Serial Number

An appliance hardware box has a serial number, which you can retrieve using a command that you run on a system console.

The command is:

dmidecode -s system-serial-number

Here is an example of how this command is run to have a serial number returned.

[root@swgappl ~]#  dmidecode -s system-serial-number
[root@swgappl ~]#
