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.
- In WatchGuard System Manager, before you connect to a device, click .
Or, select Tools > Policy Manager.
The Policy Manager dialog box appears.
Create a new configuration file.
- Click OK.
The Select Firebox Model and Name dialog box appears.
- 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.
- 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.
- From the Fireware version drop-down list, select an OS compatibility option. By default, this is set to the highest available version. For more information, see Configure Fireware OS Compatibility.
- Click OK.
Policy Manager makes a new configuration with the file name <name>.xml, where <name> is the name you gave the device.
