1 Information to Know Before Starting

Before starting to use these configuration notes, complete the following table to make sure you have the required information to complete the different steps.

Important

If you are not familiar with the meaning of the fields and buttons, click Show Help, located at the upper right corner of the Web page. When activated, the fields and buttons that offer online help will change to green and if you hover over them, the description will be displayed.

Important

These configuration notes can be successfully executed, provided your unit is using the Factory default settings.

Information Value Used in Step
IP address used by your Mediatrix unit to communicate with the Management Interface.
  • If your computer is connected to the Ethernet port meant to be connected to the Local Area Network (LAN), i.e. Eth2 on most devices
Use this value: 192.168.0.10 Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface
  • If your Mediatrix unit is configured to use a DHCP server, use the DHCP server- provided IP address.
Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface
LAN IP address as defined in your network address range Configuring the Lan1 Network Interface
Name of your LAN interface Configuring the NAT Service
Name of your WAN interface Configuring the NAT Service
By default, the IP Routing Service is started in DGW. Make sure IPv4 Forwarding is enabled (Network/IP Routing). Please start any service that you need from the list below:
  • DHCP Server
  • IP Routing
  • Network Address Translation
  • Network Firewall
  • Network Traffic Control
Starting the Routing Services

2 Enabling NAT and Routing in DGW

The routing-related services allow the Mediatrix unit to basically act as a router, a DHCP server, and a firewall. This means that you can now connect a PC, a switch, or any other Ethernet device in the LAN port of the Mediatrix unit and have access to services available on the WAN. In the following example, the Mediatrix unit is acting as a router and a DHCP server for end-users on the network.


2.1 Logging on to the Mediatrix Unit Web Interface

Context

For better performances, it is recommended to use the latest available version of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.

Note

You may not be able to log on to the Mediatrix unit Web interface if you are using older browser versions. The computer's network card must be on the same subnet as the Mediatrix unit.

Steps

  1. In your Web browser, enter the IP address used by your Mediatrix unit to communicate with the Web interface.
    • If your computer is connected to the Ethernet port, commonly used to be connected to the Local Area Network (LAN), i.e. ETH2 on most devices, use the 192.168.0.10 IP address.
    • If your Mediatrix unit is configured to use a DHCP server with IPv4, use the provided DHCP server IP address.
  2. Enter public as your username and leave the password field empty.

    Note

    The public username account has administrator rights.

    Note

    You can also use admin as a username and administrator as password.

  3. Click Login.

Result

The Information page of the Web interface is displayed.
