Device Status

Firebox System Manager (FSM) shows basic status information for your Firebox at the right side of the Front Panel tab.

Firebox, FireCluster, and Interface Details 

On the Front Panel tab, expand the entries to see:

  • The IP address of each Firebox interface and the configuration mode of the external interface.
  • In Fireware v12.10.2 or higher, you can right-click an external interface that has DHCP enabled to renew or release the DHCP lease.

  • If FireCluster is configured, whether the FireCluster member devices are available. The time at which the configuration of the member devices was last updated also appears.

If you expand the entries for each interface again, you can see:

  • IP address, gateway, and netmask of each configured interface
  • Media Access Control (MAC) address of each interface
  • Number of bytes and packets sent and received since the last device restart
  • Status of the physical link (an interface or link icon in color means an interface or link is configured, and a dark icon indicates the interface or link is down)

DNS Servers

If you configure an external interface on the device to use a PPPoE server to get an IP address, and configure a DNS server on the PPPoE server to generate IP addresses, the list of DNS servers appears on the Front Panel.

To see the list of DNS servers for the device:

  1. Expand the Interfaces tree.
  2. Expand the DNS Servers tree.
