Running the setup wizard for initial installation

After you physically install Symantec Web Gateway and connect a computer to the Mgmt port, you can run the setup wizard.

See Installation checklist.

See Steps to install Symantec Web Gateway.

This procedure describes how to configure an appliance as a Web Gateway, not as a Central Intelligence Unit.

See Steps to install a Central Intelligence Unit.

To run the setup wizard for initial installation

  1. Press the power button on the front of the Symantec Web Gateway appliance.

    The appliance takes several minutes to start up.

  2. On the computer that is connected to the Mgmt port, start a Web browser and go to the following URL:

    http://192.168.254.254

  3. On the Welcome panel, click Next >>.

  4. On the License Agreement panel, read the license agreement, check the box, and click Accept.

  5. On the Install License panel, type your company name and browse to the location of the license file or paste the XML license and click Next >>.

    The company name does not need to match the company name that you provided to Symantec when you obtained your license. The company name that you provide here is supplied to Symantec if you enable remote assistance on Symantec Web Gateway. If you do not install a license now, there is a two week grace period during which Symantec Web Gateway functions as if a base license was installed.

  6. On the Select Server Type panel, click Web Gateway.

    You can only change the server type in the setup wizard, not in the Web GUI after completing the setup wizard.

    See Running the setup wizard again.

  7. On the User Information panel, specify the following information about the primary Web GUI system user:

    Login Name

    Type a login name for the primary Web GUI administrator. Use ASCII characters only. The login name is case sensitive.

    Password

    Type a password for the primary Web GUI administrator.

    Description

    Optionally, you can type a description for the current user account. This description is displayed on the Edit User page.

    Email Address

    Type an email address. Type a complete email address, such as admin@symantecs.org. Symantec Web Gateway sends alerts and reports to this email address. If you click the Forgot Password? link on the login page, a new password is sent to this address.

  8. Click Next >>.

  9. On the Server Information panel, specify the following information:

    Server Name

    Type a descriptive name for Symantec Web Gateway with ASCII characters. The server name can include spaces. The server name is not used for network access to Symantec Web Gateway. The server name appears in reports and alerts. If you use a Central Intelligence Unit to manage multiple Symantec Web Gateway appliances, this name identifies each Symantec Web Gateway appliance.

    Monitoring or blocking

    Click one of the following options:

    • Monitoring

      Click this option if you only want to view reports on user malware activity but not block malware.

    • Blocking

      Click this option if you want to block inbound and outbound malware for user computers at your site. You can also view reports on malware activity.

    See About blocking or monitoring modes.

    Port Span/Tap or Inline

    Click one of the following options:

    • Port span/tap

      Click this option if you plan to connect Symantec Web Gateway in the port span/tap network configuration.

    • Inline

      Click this option if you plan to connect Symantec Web Gateway in the inline network configuration.

    See About inline or port span/tap network configurations.

    Enable separate management and inline networks.

    Check this check box to specify one IP address for the Web GUI and a separate IP address for the monitoring and blocking capabilities of Symantec Web Gateway. Separate management and inline networks are recommended if you plan to connect Symantec Web Gateway in the inline network configuration.

    Network Settings

    Specify the network settings for Symantec Web Gateway. Automatic (DHCP) is not recommended. If you check Enable separate management and inline networks, specify the following sets of network settings:

    • Management

      The IP address and related network settings for the Web GUI.

    • Inline

      The IP address and related network settings for the monitoring and blocking capability of Symantec Web Gateway.

    Proxy settings

    Specify proxy settings if you use a proxy in your network.

    See Configuring proxy settings in the setup wizard.

    Time zone

    Select the time zone in which Symantec Web Gateway is installed.

  10. Click Finish.

  11. The appliance may reboot or the Symantec Web Gateway services may restart.

    If you configured Symantec Web Gateway for blocking mode, the inline network configuration, or both, Symantec Web Gateway reboots or services restart.

    Symantec Web Gateway does not reboot or restart services if you configured port span/tap monitoring mode. The Web GUI is unavailable if Symantec Web Gateway reboots or services restart. Additional configuration is necessary for Symantec Web Gateway to function properly.

    See Configuring Symantec Web Gateway after running the setup wizard.
