Configuring a computer to access Symantec Web Gateway for installation

You must connect a computer to the Mgmt port to initially set up Symantec Web Gateway. You must configure the IP address and netmask of the computer as described in this section.

After the initial installation, you can access Symantec Web Gateway from a browser on any computer in your network. You can disconnect the computer from the Mgmt port and reconfigure the network settings as desired after you successfully complete the initial setup.

The exact method to use to configure the computer network settings depends on the operating system. For example, on Windows XP, access Network Connections on the Control Panel. Access the properties of the Local Area Connection and then access the properties of Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
