After you physically install Symantec Web Gateway and connect a computer to the management port, you can run the setup wizard. This procedure describes how to configure an appliance as a Web Gateway, not as a Central Intelligence Unit.
On the User Information panel, specify the following information about the primary Web GUI system user:
Type a login name for the primary Web GUI administrator. Use ASCII characters only. The login name is case sensitive.
Type a password for the primary Web GUI administrator.
Type the password again to verify its accuracy.
Optionally, you can type a description for the current user account. This description appears on the Edit User page.
Type a complete email address such as firstname.lastname@example.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.
On the Server Information panel, specify the following information:
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. It 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.
Select one of the following default operating mode options:
Click this option if you only want to view reports on user malware activity but not block malware.
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. You can override these default operating modes with custom policies.
Symantec recommends that you do not use Blocking mode, if you use the Inline configuration and you do not have static routes configured.
To specify one IP address for the Web GUI and a separate IP address for the monitoring and blocking capabilities of Symantec Web Gateway, check Enable separate management and inline networks.
Specify if you want to use Automatic (DHCP) resolution or if you want to manually specify IP addresses. Symantec Web Gateway does not support DHCP when you enable separate management and inline networks.
If you did not check Enable separate management and inline networks, specify the Management Network Settings.
Specify the IP address and related network settings for the Web GUI, monitoring capabilities, and blocking capabilities.
If you checked Enable separate management and inline networks, specify the following settings:
Management Network Settings
Specify the IP address and related network settings for the Web GUI.
The use of DHCP is disabled.
Inline Network Settings
Specify the IP address and related network settings for the monitoring and blocking capabilities.
You can specify up to two IP addresses. You can optionally also specify a DNS suffix.
(Optional, if you intend to use external proxies)
Specify the following external proxy settings:
Check Use proxy for Web Gateway secure communications (SSL) with Symantec Threat Center if you intend to have Symantec Web Gateway to use an external proxy to communicate with Symantec Threat Center. Also specify the proxy IP address and port.
Check Analyze ports used by proxy if you want Symantec Web Gateway to inspect the external proxy traffic from clients. Also specify the HTTP proxy port/port range and the FTP port.
Time Zone Setting
Click the drop-down list and select your time zone.
The time zone settings do not apply if you use Symantec Web Gateway as a proxy.
