- One (1) DFL-260E or DFL-860E NetDefend
Firewall Appliance
Please be aware of following safety Instructions
when installing:
- One (1) Power Cord
- One (1) Console Cable (RJ45-to-DB9 Cable)
A) Elevated Operating Ambient - 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.

product documentation in PDF format)
- Two (2) Rack Mounting Brackets
Rack Installation
The firewall can be mounted in an EIA standard
size 11-inch rack, which can be placed in a wiring
closet with other equipment. To install, attach the
mounting brackets to the firewall’s side panels (one
on each side) and secure them with the screws
provided (please note that these brackets are not
designed for palm size firewall).
B) Reduced Air Flow - 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
C) Mechanical Loading - Mounting of the
equipment in the rack should be such that a
hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven
mechanical loading.
D) Circuit Overloading - 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.
Figure 1. Attach the mounting brackets to DFL-260E /
E) Reliable Earthing - Reliable earthing of
rack-mounted equipment should be maintained.
Particular attention should be given to supply
connections other than direct connections to the
branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips)."
Plugging in the AC PowerCord
Device Status LEDs and Ethernet Port LEDs
Users may now connect the AC power cord into the
rear of the firewall and to an electrical outlet

The device LEDs show information about current
device status. When the device is powered up, the
POWER LED changes from off to solid green and
the SYSTEM LED changes from off to solid green.
Startup takes approximately one minute to
complete. This document will guide you through
the basic installation process for your new D-Link
security device. The Ethernet LEDs show the
status of each Ethernet port. Table 2 lists the
name, color, status, and description of each device
Note: If you would like to turn the device off and on
again, we recommend waiting a few seconds
between shutting it down and powering it back on.

using a router that uses DHCP, there may be a
conflict if the router uses the same IP address as
the DFL-260E/860E. If this is the case, either
disconnect the DFL-260E/860E from the router
and change the management IP address of the
DFL-260E/860E, or change the DHCP settings on
your router.

Note: D-Link NetDefend Firewalls only allow Web
GUI access from one of LAN ports by default for
security reason.
Connecting the Device
Connect Power and Turn the Device On/Off
Connect the power cord to the receptor on the
back panel of the DFL-260E/860E and then plug
the other end of the power cord to a wall outlet or
power strip. After the power LED turns on, you
need to wait 1-2 minutes for the DFL-260E/860E
to boot up completely.
Connecting the Device to a Network
This section provides basic information about
physically connecting the DFL-260E/860E to a
network. Follow the steps below to connect the
firewall as shown in Figure 5.
Figure 5. DFL-260E/860E Application
1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the
DFL-260E/860E to your Cable/ DSL modem. If
the Cable/DSL modem is powered on, wait for
the WAN LED on the DFL-260E/860E to light
up to show a proper connection. Otherwise,
turn off your Cable/DSL modem, connect the
Ethernet cable from the DFL-260E/860E to
your Cable/DSL modem, and turn on the Cable/
DSL modem. Some Cable/DSL modems may
not have an on/off switch and will require you to
unplug the power adapter.
Configuring the Device
The NetDefendOS software is preinstalled on the
DFL-260E/860E device. When the device is
powered on, it is ready to be configured. While the
device has a default factory configuration that
allows you to initially connect to the device, you
must perform further configuration for your specific
network requirements.
2. Insert an Ethernet cable to one of LAN ports on
the rear panel of the DFL-260E/860E and
connect it to a port on your network hub or
switch. The LAN port LED light on the
DFL-260E/860E will illuminate to indicate
proper connection
Step 4
Using the WebUI
Log into the NetDefend Firewall web interface. The
default login information is:
To use the WebUI, the workstation from which you
are managing the device must initially be on the
same subnetwork as the device.
Username: admin
Password: admin
Microsoft Internet
6.0 or higher
Mozilla Firefox
1.0 or higher
8.0 or higher
Figure 7. Authentication Message
Table 4. Browser Compatibility
Note: The Language drop-down menu allows
you to select a language for the WebUI. By
factory default, NetDefend Firewall only includes
English. You may upload specific language files
from within the WebUI for additional language
support. Currently, Japanese, Russian, Simplified
Chinese, and Traditional Chinese language files
are available.
To access the device with the WebUI:
Step 1
Connect your workstation on the LAN1.
Step 2
Ensure your workstation is configured with a static
IP address in the subnet.
Using a Console Connection (RJ-45)
The NetDefend Firewall provides an RJ-45
console port that supports a connection to a
computer or console terminal for monitoring and
configuring the device. This port uses a female
DB-9 connector, implemented as a data
communication terminal equipment (DCE)
Disable pop-up blocking software or add the
management IP address to
your pop-up blocker’s allow list.
Step 3
Launch your browser; enter the IP address for the
LAN1 interface. (The factory default IP address is, then press Enter.
To use the console port connection, you need the
following equipment:
1. A terminal or a computer with both a serial
port and the ability to emulate a terminal.
Figure 6. Browser Address
2. A RJ-45-to-DB9 RS-232 cable with
female connector. (included in the
Note: DFL-260E/860E allows either HTTP or a
secure HTTPS connections from any management
host. However, for security reasons, only a secure
HTTPS connection is allowed by default. For more
information about configuring connections settings,
please refer to the Firewall User Manual.
3. If your Laptop or PC does not have a RS-232
connector, an converter is required.
Note: DFL-260E/860E does not come with an
RS-232 converter

RJ-45-to-DB9 cable directly to the console
port on the Firewall, and tighten the captive
retaining screws.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to a
terminal or to the serial connector of a
computer running terminal emulation
software. Use the following settings for
terminal emulation software:
