This is the simplest scenario. The appliance is deployed using only one interface plugged into the network. Typically, this is used in a Secure Web Gateway installation.
To configure a basic installation, do the following:
|1.||Place the appliance in a stable and secure location.|
|2.||Connect an ethernet cable from port 1 to your network; the other ports are not used.|
|3.||Using the supplied AC power cord, connect the appliance to the power supply.|
The appliance boots.
If the appliance does not power on and boot automatically, use the power switch on the back panel.
