>> In this module, we're going to do
00:04
an overview on the web portal.
00:04
This is the webpage,
00:04
I'm going to log in, and we're
00:04
going to go over all of these options right
00:04
here and explain each and every one of them.
00:04
The first screen here is the system information.
00:04
We have the version of the firmware that you're running,
00:04
it will be listed right here,
00:04
the name of the gateway,
00:04
which is what I gave it during the installation,
00:04
the MAC address of the device.
00:04
Very helpful if you need to have
00:04
any information about the hardware,
00:04
that's your MAC address.
00:04
We have the day and timestamp,
00:04
the Internet information,
00:04
what IP address you're connected to.
00:04
If you have the watch tower app on your mobile device,
00:04
you can pair your mobile device at this point.
00:04
Also, if there's any notifications,
00:04
they'll all appear in the notifications page
00:04
and that's your system overview right here.
00:04
The security dashboard,
00:04
these are the features that are enabled.
00:04
You can turn on and off features right from this window,
00:04
so for example, I can go ahead and turn it off.
00:04
Also, you can adjust the settings associated with
00:04
that so I can just click over "Firewall",
00:04
and it will take me to the access policy tab.
00:04
So you can see now I'm on
00:04
a different tab and this is the firewall settings.
00:04
At the moment, it's going to allow
00:04
traffic to the Internet on all services,
00:04
allow traffic between internal networks,
00:04
block the incoming traffic,
00:04
and then applications and URL filtering.
00:04
The default is to block security risk categories.
00:04
Of course you can change it all to
00:04
match your specific needs.
00:04
Let's go back to the home screen,
00:04
and go to security management.
00:04
Security management,
00:04
this device is set up to be locally managed.
00:04
If we change that around to central,
00:04
we'll just follow the instructions
00:04
and we'll be able to connect
00:04
this gateway to be managed by your central management.
00:04
But we'll do a video on that later on in this training.
00:04
If you have a Cloud service provider
00:04
that's managing the device,
00:04
this is where you're going to configure that.
00:04
When you click on "Configure" right here,
00:04
it's going to ask you for
00:04
an activation key and
00:04
the details from your Cloud service provider.
00:04
Then we have licensing,
00:04
right now we're running on a trial license.
00:04
You can see that right here.
00:04
Also we have the sitemap,
00:04
this is just a different interface to get to
00:04
all the menus and settings that are
00:04
available on this webpage.
00:04
Under monitoring, we have our notifications.
00:04
If you want to set up your settings,
00:04
we can just go here and select
00:04
what you want to get notified about.
00:04
Active devices, this is going to be
00:04
the machines that are connected to the device.
00:04
At this point right now,
00:04
I only have my Windows 7 machine,
00:04
so I can see the IP address,
00:04
the MAC address, device details,
00:04
allowed and the interface I'm connected through.
00:04
If I'll go to monitoring,
00:04
I can see that right now we don't have
00:04
too much traffic going through the firewall,
00:04
I can see the amount of VPN tunnels,
00:04
how many active devices and the connections.
00:04
If I click on connections,
00:04
I can actually see the connections,
00:04
and you'll notice that the menu have changed because
00:04
now this is a different menu.
00:04
As I mentioned before, everything is linked,
00:04
so it's going to take you back and forth from
00:04
the menu. Let's go back.
00:04
If you go down here to reports,
00:04
we can actually generate a report that would give you
00:04
information about the output of a device,
00:04
and that can be generated by
00:04
clicking the generate right here.
00:04
We can do it monthly,
00:04
weekly, daily, or even by the hour.
00:04
Also from this home view,
00:04
we have troubleshooting,
00:04
so we can monitor system resources,
00:04
show the routing table,
00:04
test Cloud service ports,
00:04
generate the CPinfo file,
00:04
so you can do that over
00:04
CLI or you can just do it right here.
00:04
You can ping a machine,
00:04
a DNS lookup, or even run a packet captured.
00:04
So I can go ahead and click this and I can
00:04
see it checked connectivity and everything is okay,
00:04
the ports are open so we're good.
00:04
Here, we have the supports page,
00:04
so we have a lot of contact information
00:04
and also some available downloads.
00:04
I can download the local manual,
00:04
I can download drivers.
00:04
Again, I have the MAC address,
00:04
version number and more.
00:04
That concludes the web portal overview module.
