Assign the appliance IP, DNS, and gateway addresses.



Set access credentials and CLI password.



Configure Application Delivery Network (ADN) options, select what traffic type(s) to intercept, and
set the default allow/deny policy.

This can be performed anywhere. The Blue Coat SG200 can then be rack-mounted and/or connected
to its permanent network position.
The serial console allows you to use a terminal or PC running terminal emulation software to:


Assign the appliance IP, DNS, and gateway addresses.
