Information Required for Configuration:

- Email Address
Step One - Physical Installation
- With the appliance powered OFF, install a crossover cable (red) between Exinda’s WAN port and the Router/Firewall.
- Install a straight-through cable (blue) between Exinda’s LAN port and the LAN switch.
- Ensure that there is still connectivity through the appliance. This will ensure that the Ethernet bypass is working.
- Install a straight-through cable (blue) between Exinda’s management port (Gb1) and the LAN switch.
- Plug in the power cord.
- Switch on the appliance and ensure that the NIC lights flash and traffic is passing through.
Step 2 - Jump Start from the Web User Interface
- The Exinda appliance by default will pick up an IP address from DHCP. The IP address is available on the management interface.
- Note: If a DHCP address is not picked up, the Exinda will default to the IP address 172.14.57. Open a web browser and connect to the Web User Interface by typing https://126.96.36.199 in the address field. You must configure the IP address of your computer to the same subnet as the Exinda appliance – e.g., set your IP address to 188.8.131.52, netmask 255.255.255.0
- Click on the Exinda appliance that has been found.
- Select Basic Mode and Login with username=admin and password=exinda.
- Click on Wizard and Start the Configuration Wizard.
- Complete all the steps. You are done.
Or from the Serial Console / Command Line Interface
- To access the Exinda appliance via serial console, use your preferred terminal software (e.g., HyperTerm) with the following settings:
- Bits per second=9600
- Stop bits=1
- Flow Control=Hardware
- Login with username=admin and password=exinda.
- When prompted to run the jumpstart answer yes. If not prompted execute the following commands to start the jumpstart:
enable, # configure terminal, # configuration jump-start
- The configuration Jump Start automatically starts. Complete all the steps.
- Save, and you’re done.
