1.3.3 Getting Started
The IAS-2000 provides web-based configuration. After completing the
hardware installation, IAS-2000 can be configured through a PC using
JavaScript enabled Internet Explorer version 6.0 and above.
To access the configuration screen, connect the PC and IAS-2000 in
advance via the Private Port of IAS-2000. Then, launch the web browser
and enter the IP address of the default gateway for that port in the address
field then press Enter. Default IP address of the default gateway of the
private ports is “https://192.168.2.254”. (Note: https is used for a secured
connection.)

Connect an Ethernet cable to the WAN1 Port on the front panel.
Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to ADSL modem, cable
modem or a switch/hub of the internal network. The LED of this WAN
should be on to indicate a proper connection.
3.
Connect an Ethernet cable to one LAN Port with the user
authentication function enabled on the front panel. The default ports
are LAN1 ports. (Note: Authentication is required for the users to
access the network via these LAN Ports. The LAN port with
authentication function is referred to as Public LAN.) Connect the
other end of the Ethernet cable to an AP or switch. The LED of this
LAN should be on to indicate a proper connection.
4.
Connect an Ethernet cable to one LAN Port with the user
authentication function disabled on the front panel. The default ports
are LAN2 ports. (Note: No authentication is required for the users to
access the network via these LAN Ports. The LAN port without
authentication function is referred to as Private LAN and the
administrator can enter the administrative user interface to perform
configurations via Private LAN.) Connect the other end of the
Ethernet cable to a client’s PC. The LED of this LAN should be on to
indicate a proper connection.
Attention: Usually a straight RJ-45 could be applied if IAS-2000 is
connected to a hub/computer that supports automatic 7
such as the Access Point. However, after the Access Point hardware
reset, IAS-2000 should not be able to connect to Access Point while
connecting with a straight cable unless the cable was pulled out and
plug-in again. This scenario does NOT occur while using a crossover
cable.
English
Once the IAS-2000 has been connected,
the login screen will appear on the
browser. Enter the default username,
“admin”, and the default password,
“sohoware”, in the User Name and
Password column. Click the Enter icon to
log in.
After successfully logging into IAS-2000,
a web management interface with a
welcome message will appear. To logout,
simply click the Logout icon on the upper
right corner of the interface to return to the
login screen.
Click System Configuration on the
upper left corner to go to the System
Configuration screen and run the
Configuration Wizard to help you
complete the configuration.
