Configuring the 5300LF EdgeMarc and 5300LF EdgeProtect

You can configure the 5300LF EdgeMarc and 5300LF EdgeProtect appliance using a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. The 5300LF is shipped with the pre-configured IP address for the LAN port (LAN port 1). Requirement: To connect a PC directly to the appliance, you must use an ethernet crossover cable. To connect to the 5300LF EdgeMarc and 5300LF EdgeProtect, follow these steps: 1. Assign static IP address with subnet to a PC 2. Connect the PC to LAN port 1 of the 5300LF using an ethernet crossover cable 3. Launch a web browser on the PC and enter the URL string: Press Return The login window appears

4. Enter the username root and the password default to log into the system The initial 5300LF main configuration menu appears

Step 3 Plan Your Configuration

The EdgeMarc 5300LF can be deployed as a gateway router in a network. It can also be deployed in a network behind an existing firewall. Based on your deployment criteria, consult the following documents for further configuration: 5300LF Hardware Installation Guide VoIP Operating System (VOS) for EdgeMarc User Manual

Helpful Hints
Although not recommended, the EdgeMarc 5300LF and IP phones can be installed behind an existing enterprise firewall. In this instance the firewall will have to be configured to allow access to and from the EdgeMarc 5300LFs public IP address for the following ports: Port Type UDP RTP TCP Telnet FTP MGCP NTP SIP Firewall Ports to Open 161 (SNMP) and 162 (SNMPTRAP) 1056 to 1255 SSH TCP 22 for remote management & TCP 80 for WAN configuration-downloads 23 TCP 21 for stateful TCP-session control from 5300LF to Edgewater FTP server 2427, 2429, 2432, and 2727 123 5060 and 5075

IP phones normally point to a local NTP server for their time reference. The NTP port 123 needs to be opened if your network does not have an NTP server. Please Note: Traffic shaping for this configuration is only available if the enterprise data devices are also installed behind the 5300LF appliance.
