Start Firebox System Manager

You can use Firebox System Manager (FSM) to view the status of your connected Firebox. Before you can use FSM, WatchGuard System Manager must be open and you must be connected to a device. You can open more than one FSM window to show the status of different Fireboxes, but you must open each window one at a time.

For more information, see Start WatchGuard System Manager and Connect to a Device with WatchGuard System Manager.

  1. From WatchGuard System Manager, select the Device Status tab.
  2. Select the Firebox to examine with Firebox System Manager.
  3. Click the Firebox System Manager icon.
    Or, select Tools > Firebox System Manager.
    Firebox System Manager appears.

You might need to wait for a few seconds for Firebox System Manager to connect to the Firebox before you can see status information.

Disconnect From and Reconnect To a Device

You can stop and start the monitored connection to your Firebox while the FSM window is still open. This allows you to stop the flow of data to FSM from the monitored device. You can also start the flow of data again.

To disconnect FSM from the device and stop the monitored connection:

  1. Start FSM.
  2. Click the Disconnect from device icon.
    Or, select File > Disconnect.
    The device status changes to Not Monitored.

To connect FSM to the device and start the monitored connection:

  1. Start FSM.
  2. Click the Connect to device icon.
    Or, select File > Connect.
    The device status changes to Connected.
