Mounting Instructions
The Sophos UTM 425 appliance is designed for use in racks. Please consider
the following security tips:
Important Note: The appliance is designed for use in rack systems.
Functional reliability outside of a rack cannot be guaranteed.
Warnings and Precautions
The appliance can be operated safely if you observe the following notes and
the notes on the appliance itself.
Rack Precautions
ÌÌ Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended
to the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
ÌÌ In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
ÌÌ In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
lways make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from
the rack.
ou should extend only one component at a time–extending two or more
simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
General Server Precautions
ÌÌ Review the electrical and general safety precautions that came with the
components you are adding to your appliance.
etermine the placement of each component in the rack before you install
the rails.
ÌÌ Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and
then work up.
llow the hot plug hard drives and power supply modules to cool before
touching them.
lways keep the rack‘s front door, all panels, and server components
closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
Rack Mounting Considerations
ÌÌ Ambient operating temperature: If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack
assembly, the ambient operating temperature of the rack environment
may be greater than the ambient temperature of the room. Therefore,
you should install the equipment in an environment compatible with the
manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient temperature.
ÌÌ Reduced airflow: Equipment should be mounted into a rack to allow
enough airflow to keep the equipment cool.
echanical loading: Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a
hazardous condition does not arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
UTM 425 Operating Instructions
ircuit overloading: Consideration should be given to the connection
of the equipment to the power supply circuitry and the effect that any
possible overloading of circuits might have on overcurrent protection and
power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate
ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
eliable ground: Reliable grounding must be maintained at all times. To
ensure this, the rack itself should be grounded. Particular attention should
be given to power supply connections other than the direct connections to
the branch circuit (i.e., the use of power strips, etc.).
Rack Mounting Instructions
To mount the appliance to the rack you need the delivered rack-mount
brackets. There are a variety of rack units on the market, which may mean
the assembly procedure will differ slightly. You should also refer to the
installation instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.
Important Note: Make sure you use the screws supplied with the rack-mount
brackets. Using the wrong screws could damage the hardware appliance and
would invalidate your warranty. The rack model UTM 425 is not delivered
with rails. Please observe the mounting instructions for your rack.
1. Attach the rack-mount brackets to the appliance
Place the appliance on a hard, flat surface with the front panel facing you.
Attach the rack-mount brackets to the left and right side of the appliance
with the supplied screws.
Make sure the brackets are properly attached to the appliance.
2. Choose the rack location:
Leave enough clearance in front of the rack so that you can open the front
door completely (~60 cm/25 inches). Leave approximately 80 cm/30 inches
of clearance in the back of the rack to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in
servicing. This product is for installation only in a restricted access location
(dedicated equipment rooms, service closets and the like).
3. Slide the appliance into the rack.
4. Attach the brackets to the rack with the appropriate screws (not
UTM 425 Operating Instructions
Connection and Configuration
How to connect the appliance is described in the Hardware Quick Start
Guide. For configuration you can follow the initial setup wizard described in
the WebAdmin Quick Start Guide or cancel it and perform a manual setup
(see the Sophos UTM Administration Guide).
The Sophos UTM 425 is equipped with SFP GBIC ports. The abbreviation SFP
GBIC stands for Small Form Factor Plugable GigaBit Interface Converter and
designates a flexible interface which changes electronic signals into optical
signals. The converters used with the appliance are often also designated as
Mini-GBIC or New GBIC.
To use SFP GBIC ports, you will need the appropriate SFP GBIC modules.
These modules are not delivered with the appliance. You will need to use the
module type most appropriate for the existing network. The following SFP
GBIC module types may be used:
ÌÌ 1000 Base-T: IEEE 802.3 - 1 Gbit/s via Ethernet cable. An Ethernet cable
category 5 covers a maximum distance about 100 meters.
ÌÌ 1000 Base-SX: IEEE 802.3 - 1 Gbit/s via fiberglass. Multi-mode fiberglass
(MMF) cables can cover a distance of 500-550 m.
ÌÌ 1000 Base-LX: IEEE 802.3 - 1 Gbit/s via fiberglass. Here, exclusively
single-mode fiberglass is used. The distance which can be covered with
this transmission option is approximately 10 km.
Caution: The SFP GBIC Ports use lasers to transmit signals over fiber optic
cable. The lasers are compliant with the requirements of a Class 1 Laser and
are inherently eye-safe in normal operation. However, you should never look
directly at a transmit port when it is powered on.
Installing a SFP GBIC module
Please read the operation manual to the SFP GBIC module. Carefully
insert the SFP GBIC module into the port until it engages. The interface is
immediately ready for use.
Removing a SFP GBIC module
1.Remove the fiberglass cable from the module you wish to remove.
2.Remove the module carefully from the port.
Depending on when you purchased your SFP GBIC module, it may have
any of three different release mechanisms: a plastic tab on the bottom of
the mini-GBIC, a wire bail, or a plastic collar around the mini-GBIC.
UTM 425 Operating Instructions
Please read the operation manual to the SFP GBIC module.
UTM 425 Operating Instructions
Serial Console
You can connect a serial console to the COM port of the Sophos UTM
hardware appliances. You can use, for instance, the Hyperterminal terminal
program included with most versions of Microsoft Windows to log on to the
appliance console. Use the provided RJ45 to DB9 adapter cable to connect
the console to your hardware appliance.
The required connection settings are:
Bits per second: 38,400, Data bits: 8, Parity: N (none), Stop bits: 1. Access via
the serial console is activated by default on ttyS1. The connections of the
appliances and the respective functionality are listed in chapter "Operating
Elements and Connections."
