Installing as a Basic Web Proxy

Note: This topic applies to the Leeds Release.

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.

For example:

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; for S10 appliances, hold down the key on the keypad for one second to power on the S10 appliance.

For a detailed description of how to register your appliance, see Accessing the Smoothwall .
