Make a New Configuration File

The Quick Setup Wizard makes a basic configuration file for your Firebox. We recommend that you use this as the base for each of your configuration files. You can also use Policy Manager to make a new configuration file with only the default configuration properties.

  1. In WatchGuard System Manager, before you connect to a device, click .
    Or, select Tools > Policy Manager.
    The Policy Manager dialog box appears.

  2. Click OK.
    The Select Firebox Model and Name dialog box appears.

Select Firebox Model and Name dialog box

  1. From the Model drop-down lists, select your device model family and device model number. Because some groups of features are unique to specific models, select the same model as your hardware device.
  2. In the Name text box, type the name for the device configuration file. This name is also used to identify the device if it is managed by a WatchGuard Management Server, and for logging and reporting.
  3. The For v11.4 or later check box is selected by default. To create a configuration file for a device that uses Fireware v11.0 - v11.3.x, clear this check box.
  4. Click OK.

Policy Manager makes a new configuration with the file name <name>.xml, where <name> is the name you gave the device.
