Implement the Initial Configuration Settings

Default initial configuration settings

You can set up an appliance with default initial configuration settings or implement your own settings, using the configuration wizard that appears during the process.

The following table shows the default settings.

Parameter Value
Primary network interface eth0
Autoconfiguration with DHCP yes
Host name mwgappl
Root password webgateway
Remote root logon with SSH on
Default gateway <configured by DHCP>
DNS server <configured by DHCP>

Accept the default initial configuration settings

To accept the default initial configuration settings, work with the wizard to configure a root password and remote root logon, but leave the remaining settings unchanged.

  1. Press Esc in response to all prompts of the configuration wizard until the root password is configured.
  2. When asked for the root password, enter and repeat it, then confirm it with OK.
  3. When asked to allow remote root logon with SSH, click Yes or No.

When the initial configuration settings are implemented, the appliance restarts and the appliance volume wizard appears to let you resize the volume of the web cache.

For more information, refer to Configure Secure Web Gateway System

After completing the initial configuration, with or without resizing the web cache, you can log on to the user interface.

Implement your own initial configuration settings

To implement your own initial configuration settings, follow the instructions of the wizard.

In the wizard windows, configure the following:

  1. Primary network interface
    • IP address entered manually or configured dynamically by DHCP
      NOTE: If you plan to configure the explicit proxy mode with High Availability functions (Proxy HA) mode later on, we strongly recommend not to enter a virtual IP address here.
    • Network mask (only after entering the IP address manually)
    • Default gateway (only after entering the IP address manually)
    • Host name
    • DNS server (only after entering the IP address manually)
  2. Review the summary that is displayed after configuring the first settings.
    • If you approve of the summary, confirm and configure the remaining settings:
    • Root password
    • Remote root logon with SSH
      The installation is completed with your initial configuration settings and the IP address is displayed. You can now log on to the user interface.
    • If you need to make changes, click Cancel and return to step 1.

When the initial configuration settings are implemented, the appliance restarts and the appliance volume wizard appears to let you resize the volume of the web cache.

After completing the initial configuration, with or without resizing the web cache, you can log on to the user interface.
