Configuring an Appliance Using Setup Tool on the Command Line
To set the minimum configuration items necessary for running Setup Wizard, you must use Setup Tool. Below is
an overview of your steps; see Configuring a New Appliance Using Setup Tool for detailed instructions.
To configure basic network settings using the Setup Tool
Use a terminal emulation program to establish a serial connection with the appliance from a laptop
computer or terminal.
Set the serial connection options to 115200 baud, 8-n-1, and no handshake.
- Turn the appliance on. The first time you start the system from a serial connection, Setup Tool
automatically runs. When prompted to log in, type
root for the username.
To configure the appliance, you are prompted to provide this information:
- IP address and subnet mask for the internal interface
- Default gateway used to access the internal interface (optional)
