Configuring the Untangle SD-WAN Router setup wizard


Untangle SD-WAN Router includes a setup wizard to guide you through the initial configuration.

You can access the setup wizard from the local network, or if you have an eSeries appliance you can access the setup wizard through Command Center via Zero Touch Provisioning.

Important: Before configuring the setup wizard, make sure the WAN interfaces of your Untangle SD-WAN Router are attached to the Internet.

From Command Center

  1. Locate the Untangle serial number on bottom of your eSeries appliance.
  2. Log in to Command Center and navigate to the Appliances screen.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Enter the Untangle serial number of your appliance and click Add.
  5. If your Untangle SD-WAN Router is not configured, you can proceed to the Setup Wizard.

From the Local Network

To access the setup wizard from the local network, connect your management computer to one of the LAN ports of your Untangle SD-WAN Router and go to in your browser. If your Untangle SD-WAN Router has wireless capability, you can connect to the default wireless network named Untangle using the password 12345678.

Step 1. License Agreement

Review the License Agreement and click Continue.


Step 2. System

On the System step, enter credentials for your local admin account and set the time zone based on the physical location of your Untangle SD-WAN Router.


Step 3. LTE

If you have the e6wl appliance, the wizard presents an LTE configuration step. Select your Network provider and confirm that you see the IMEI of your LTE modem and the ICCID and IMSI of your SIM card.

Important: You must install your SIM card before powering on the appliance. See Configuring the LTE connection for more instructions on SIM card installation.  


Step 4. WiFi

If your Untangle SD-WAN Router supports WiFi, configure parameters for your wireless network. For more information on the wireless configuration refer to Configuring Network Interfaces.


Step 5. Interfaces

Review the interfaces and confirm the TCP/IP settings for each interface. To edit an Interface, click the edit image4.png icon. For more information on the configuration of network interfaces refer to Configuring Network

Step 6. Performance

On the performance test step, SD-WAN Router evaluates the throughput and latency of each WAN link. This is necessary for accuracy of the QoS and Traffic Shaping feature. Please allow some time for this process to complete.

Note: If the test does not succeed for any WAN interface you must manually enter the max throughput based on your Internet Service provider.


Getting Started

Once you have completed all of the steps, you can proceed to the Dashboard to fine tune your configuration and review the status of your Untangle SD-WAN Router.
