R3000IR Introduction
Thank you for choosing to evaluate the 8e6 Technologies R3000IR Internet Filter with
Integrated Reporter. This product combines the R3000 Internet Filter with the ER Enterprise Reporter to track end user Internet activity and generate reports that assist administrators in developing policies and targeting sites to be filtered, in order to maximize
bandwidth utilization and productivity.
The R3000 can be configured to block specific Web sites or service ports, thereby protecting your organization against lost productivity, network bandwidth issues, and possible legal problems that can result from the misuse of Internet resources. This product
also features expansive library categories, instant message and peer-to-peer blocking,
user authentication, and intuitive screens and fields for ease of use when configuring
and maintaining the server, as well as managing user and group filtering profiles.
The ER is comprised of the server and client application. Once the ER server is configured and R3000 log files have populated the database, an administrator can use the
ER client reporting application to virtually generate an unlimited number of queries and
reports from data in the database. This data shows which end user is accessing which
site, the duration of each site visit, and the frequency of these visits. The client gives
the administrator the ability to interrogate massive datasets through flexible drill-down
technology, until the desired view is obtained, and then memorize and save the view to
a user-defined report menu for repetitive, scheduled execution and distribution.
Quick setup procedures—to implement the best filtering practices for the scenarios
described in the second paragraph—are included in the Best Filtering Practices section
that follows the Conclusion of this guide.

8e6 R3000IR Quick Start Guide
Rack Mount the Server
Rack Setup Precautions
Warning:
Before rack mounting the server, the physical environment should be set up to safely
accommodate the server. Be sure that:
•
The weight of all units in the rack is evenly distributed. Mounting of the equipment in
the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven
mechanical loading.
•
The rack will not tip over when the server is mounted, even when the unit is fully
extended from the rack.
•
For a single rack installation, stabilizers are attached to the rack.
•
For multiple rack installations, racks are coupled together.
•
Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment is maintained at all times. Particular
attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the
branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips).
•
A power cord will be long enough to fit into the server when properly mounted in the
rack and will be able to supply power to the unit.
•
The connection of the server to the power supply will not overload any circuits. Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit
and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on overcurrent protection
and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should
be used when addressing this concern.
•
The server is only connected to a properly rated supply circuit. Reliable earthing
(grounding) of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained.
•
The air flow through the server’s fan or vents is not restricted. Installation of the
equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised.
•
The maximum operating ambient temperature does not exceed 104°F (40°C). If
installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature
of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration
should be given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the
maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
WARNING: Extend only one component at a time. Extending two or more
components simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.

8e6 R3000IR Quick Start Guide
Step 2: Test the R3000 Console Connection
Now that the R3000IR is physically installed on your network and you have configured
its network settings, you need to test the unit to see if it is set up properly.
A. Restore the setup workstation you used for the Network Setup to its original settings,
and connect it to the network hub to create a “network workstation.” (You could also
use another workstation already on the network that has Internet access.)
B. Launch IE on the network workstation, and enter the IP address you assigned to
LAN 1 (Step 1A, Quick Start menu: administration menu, or Step 1B, Network: LAN
Settings, sub-step B). Be sure to include the port information :88 in the address field.
For example, if the R3000 were assigned an IP address of 10.10.10.10, you would
enter http://10.10.10.10:88 in the browser window’s address field.
C. Click Go. You should be prompted to log into the Administrator console, giving the
Username and Password.
If you can access the R3000 Administrator console, the R3000 is functioning on your
network and you should proceed to Step 3.
If you cannot access the R3000 Administrator console, please verify the status of the
LAN connection in Windows on the network workstation, and then try enabling/disabling
the LAN connection. If that fails to work, check the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The R3000IR is turned on.
The R3000IR is connected to the same hub as your router/firewall.
Can the PC normally connect to the Internet?
Is the PC able to ping LAN 1 of the R3000?
Is the R3000 plugged into a switch instead of a hub?
Is there a caching server?
Can the R3000 ping the filtered PC? (Refer to the System Command window in the
Diagnostics section of the R3000 User Guide)
Did you restart the R3000 after changing the network settings?
Do you have both LAN ports connected to your network hub?
If still unsuccessful, contact an 8e6 Technologies solutions engineer or technical support representative.

Step 3: Test Filtering or Mobile Client Console Connection
Test Filtering
If this R3000 has been set up in the Invisible, Router, or Firewall mode, once you have
accessed the R3000 Administrator console, you should test filtering.
A. Test the R3000’s filtering by opening a browser window on a network workstation,
and going to http://test.8e6.net (an empty site for testing pornography filtering).
B. You should receive a block page. If you do not, contact an 8e6 Technologies solutions engineer or technical support representative.
NOTE: Port 22 (SSH) must be open on your network to allow access by remote
technical support.
Test the Mobile Client Console Connection
If this R3000 has been set up in the Mobile mode, you do not need to test filtering. Instead, once you have accessed the R3000 Administrator console, you should verify that
the Mobile Client can be accessed by the R3000.
A. Use a workstation on which the Mobile Client is installed that is not on a filtered portion of the LAN. Open a browser window on a network workstation, and then go to
http://test.8e6.net (an empty site for testing pornography filtering).
B. The connection should be blocked, and the block page served by the R3000 should
display in the browser’s Address field. If you do not receive a block page, contact an
8e6 Technologies solutions engineer or technical support representative.
NOTE: Port 22 (SSH) must be open on your network to allow access by remote
technical support.

Best Filtering Practices
Threat Class Groups
8e6’s filtering library currently consists of 103 library filtering categories, each placed in
one of the 20 filtering category groups defined in the interface: Adult Content, Bandwidth,
Business/Investments, Community/Organizations, Education, Entertainment, Government/Law/Politics, Health/Fitness, Illegal/Questionable, Information Technology, Internet
Communication, Internet Productivity, Internet/Intranet Misc., News/Reports, Religion/
Beliefs, Security, Shopping, Society/Lifestyles, Travel/Events, and Custom Categories.
Outside of the interface, we have also grouped these library categories into four Threat
Class Groups, based on the type of security level that best defines them:
•
•
•
•
Threats/Liabilities
Bandwidth/Productivity
General/Productivity
Pass/Allow
Please review the Filtering Scenarios sub-section for information on configuring the
R3000 to fulfill the filtering scenarios assigned to each of the four Threat Class Groups.
