Physical Installation Steps

Step 1: Place the NetEnrich appliance on a rack or on a flat surface. Place the other accessories either on a rack or on a flat surface in physical proximity to each other Step 2a: Identify and organize the networks for the NetEnrich system. The NetEnrich appliance A3000 supports two networks. Each appliance therefore has two network ports: A. The first network port (eth0) hooks up to the External Network 0 – also called the User Access network or External WAN network and typically connects to the public Internet via a firewall or DMZ. B. The second network port (eth1) hooks up to the Controller/Management Network 1 – this is the network where all the NetEnrich VPM Hard Controllers reside.

Step 5: Connecting to and Using the NetEnrich system 1.

Power up the NetEnrich VPM Gateway appliance and wait for the appliance to boot up. 2. Power up the NetEnrich VPM Hard Controllers via PoE or AC adapter. 3. Connect a laptop or PC to the External Network 0, and assign it a static IP address: 172.21.11.100 and Netmask: 255.255.0.0 4. If you need to change the preset network configuration settings on the NetEnrich appliance(s) you can either access the administration console webpage at https://172.21.11.51:8443 or use the serial port access with settings 115200,8,N,1 using VT100 to make the modifications. Login with username “admin” and password “admin”. -- NOTE: FOR SECURITY REASONS, PLEASE CHANGE THE PASSWORD ASAP! 5. Connect to the NetEnrich VPM Gateway using a web browser within the External Network 0, and point it to https://172.21.11.51/nems (username: nems; password: nems) or use the changed settings applied in above step 4 -- NOTE: FOR SECURITY REASONS, PLEASE CHANGE THE PASSWORD ASAP! 6. Configure and create objects – Companies, Users, Roles, Controllers, Devices, Device Groups, Permissions 7. Refer to the NetEnrich VPM Gateway Installation Guide section for more details on installation. For further information, please contact NetEnrich at support@netenrich.com
