The main idea behind this is to set up basic stuff from within CLI and to proceed from GUI. There is a catch to start with: most equipment I worked with used the same serial port “Baud rate” setting of 9600, but for setting radware we must use the value of 19200, like this:
After this we connect to radware serial port with cable that came along with it and power it on. When it boots up, we log in using radware/radware combination. Now it is necessary to set up the operation mode, either “bridge” or “proxy”. In my case, I will go ahead and select “proxy”. In this step I will also chose the management port and specify its address and netmask:
[AppXcel]$ appxcel mode set proxy 10.x.y.244 255.255.255.0 -inf Lan1
Are you sure you want to set the device to mode proxy? (Y/N) y
Setting eth0 to auto negotiate mode on
Setting eth1 to auto negotiate mode on
Please wait ...
Active mode is: proxy
If I want to reach this management interface from outside of this VLAN (and I do), I need to specify the default gateway or at least set up a static route. I will go ahead with default gateway:
[AppXcel]$ net route table create defaultgw 10.x.y.1
Default gateway was created successfully
You can set up now a different password (please do so now, because you might forget 🙂 )
[AppXcel]$ system passwd
Enter new password:
The CWI engine is restarted in order for changes in the User Table to be applied.
All management users connected via CWI will be disconnected.
