You can use the Web Setup Wizard or the Quick Setup Wizard to create a new configuration for your Firebox. If you want to start over with a new default configuration, you can reset the Firebox to factory-default settings and run one of the setup wizards again. Both setup wizards connect to WatchGuard to download the device feature key that enables configuration of licensed features and services.
You can use either of these setup wizards to set up your Firebox with a new configuration:
Web Setup Wizard
To use the Web Setup Wizard, you connect to Fireware Web UI on the Firebox. You can use the Web Setup Wizard to create a new configuration with recommended policies and settings, or restore a configuration from a backup image. In Fireware v12.5.3 and higher, the Web Setup Wizard also supports two configuration download options that are not supported in the Quick Setup Wizard:
- RapidDeploy — Download a configuration created for RapidDeploy
- Cloud-Managed — Download a configuration from WatchGuard Cloud
Before you use the Cloud-Managed option, you must add the Firebox to WatchGuard Cloud as a Cloud-Managed device. This option is not yet available in WatchGuard Cloud. If your WatchGuard Cloud account does not support Cloud-Managed devices, you cannot use this option.
For instructions to run the Web Setup Wizard, see Run the Web Setup Wizard.
Quick Setup Wizard
To use the Quick Setup Wizard, you must install WatchGuard System Manager on a Windows computer. The Quick Setup Wizard discovers the Firebox on your network and then helps you to create a new configuration with recommended policies and settings.
For instructions to run the Quick Setup Wizard, see Run the WSM Quick Setup Wizard.
For a wireless Firebox that runs Fireware 12.5.3 or higher, you can use either setup wizard to enable wireless access to the trusted network.
For more information about policies and services the setup wizards configure, see Setup Wizard Default Policies and Settings.
After you run the setup wizard you can further customize your security policies to meet the needs of your network. For more information, see Complete Your Installation.
