  • COMPREHENSIVE INTERNET SECURITY ™ SonicWALL Internet Security Appliances QUICK START GUIDE
  • qsg_6400.fm Page 3 Wednesday, November 20, 2002 2:55 PM Quick Start Installation Thank you for purchasing a SonicWALL Internet security appliance. The SonicWALL acts as a secure barrier between your private LAN and the public Internet (WAN) to protect your networks from security threats on the Internet. It also provides a secure means of connecting to your corporate office using the same Internet connection. Before You Begin Check Package Contents • One SonicWALL Internet security appliance • One SonicWALL Quick Start Guide • One SonicWALL Firmware and Documentation CD • One Ethernet cable • One Crossover cable (labeled “Crossover”) • One 5 Volt DC power supply (not pictured) • One Power cord If any items are missing from your package, contact SonicWALL, Inc. Web: <http://www.sonicwall.com/support/> Phone: (888) 777-1476 Product CD Crossover Cable (red) SonicWALL Quick Start Guide Ethernet Cable (gray) Power Supply* or Power Cord* *Your actual power supply may vary from the pictures above. This does not affect functionality of the part. SonicWALL Quick Start Guide Page 3
  • qsg_6400.fm Page 4 Wednesday, November 20, 2002 2:55 PM What You Need to Get Connected • SonicWALL Internet Security Appliance • Local Area Network (LAN), Cable modem, or DSL modem • PC or Macintosh computer • A Web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer v5.0 or later, or Netscape Navigator v4.7 or later - your Web browser must support Java and HTTP uploads in order to fully manage the SonicWALL.) • Internet Service Provider (ISP) Information TEL:______________________________ ISP Connection Information Before you can begin installing your SonicWALL, determine how your ISP distributes IP addresses. Call your ISP to find out if your Internet connection uses DHCP to obtain an IP address, or PPPoE (typical of DSL access), or if they have given you a static IP address. Write all of your networking information down in the checklist below: IP Addressing using DHCP No action necessary. The SonicWALL automatically detects the presence of a DHCP server during installation. IP Addressing using PPPoE User Name: Password: IP Addressing using a Single Public IP Address IP Address:_________________________ Subnet Mask:_______________________ Default Gateway:____________________ Primary DNS:_______________________ Secondary DNS:_____________________ If you are not using one of the network configurations above, step by step installation instructions for additional networking methods are found in Chapter 2, Configuring the Network Mode on the Alert! SonicWALL, of your Administrator’s Guide. The Administrator’s Guide is located on your product CD and requires Acrobat Reader to view it. Acrobat Reader is also provided on your product CD. If you are unfamiliar with network terminology, review the glossary below: Glossary • IP Address - A set of numbers in the format, XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, used to address computers on the Internet. • Subnet Mask - A set of numbers in IP address format using 255 in place of the XXX’s. It determines the type of network by “masking” out numbers. A Class C network has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. • Default Gateway - A device on an internetwork that forwards packets to another network. • DNS (Domain Name System) Server - A computer that “looks up” the name of a computer and finds the cor- responding IP address. This allows you to access computers on the Internet without configuring IP addresses for remote connections. • PPPoE - Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet supports the transmission of network packets over serial transmission lines such as DSL or POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service). • DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol allocates IP addresses to computers on the network automatically without assigning a computer a static (fixed) IP address.

It is labeled HomePort on the TELE3 TZ and TELE3 TZX. Depending on the model purchased, there may be additional ports on the appliance. Begin the Installation of Your SonicWALL Applying Power to the SonicWALL 1 If you are installing a TELE3, TELE3 SP, TELE3 TZ, TELE3 TZX, SOHO3 or PRO 100, attach the power supply to the power cord. Plug the power adapter into the SonicWALL and plug the other end into a power outlet. If you are installing a PRO 200, 300, PRO 230, PRO 330, or GX series, attach the power cable to the power input of the SonicWALL, and the other end into an AC outlet. Use the power switch to turn on the SonicWALL. The Power light turns green when power is applied to the SonicWALL. Also, the Reset light remains lit for approximately 90 seconds while the SonicWALL performs a series of diagnostic tests. Set Up Continues SonicWALL Quick Start Guide Page 5

The link LED lights indicating an active connection. 3 2 Connect one end of the red Crossover cable to the network port of your computer. 3 Connect the other end of the red Crossover cable to the LAN port of your SonicWALL. The link LED lights indicating an active connection. Active Link Active Link If the link LED does not light up and a gray Ethernet cable was used to make the connection, completely disconnect the gray Ethernet cable and connect the red Crossover cable. If a red Cross- over cable was used for the connection, completely disconnect the red Crossover cable and connect the gray Ethernet cable. Exchanging the cables does not damage your SonicWALL or your computer. Set Up Continues Page 6
