First of all, thank you for using Halon Security's security router (SR) series. It's a line of very capable firewalls and routers, and we hope that this getting started guide will help you get going as smoothly as possible.

The default configuration

Before the router's first boot, it has no configuration. Upon boot, a program called bootcfgmgr will create an initial configuration according to hardware parameters such as physical interface configuration. This boils down to:

  • An "admin" user with password "admin" (the "admin" user is capable of creating other users, including root access, and is therefore to be considered a "power user")
  • An HTTPS server on port 443 and an SSH server on port 22, for administration access other than console
  • The first physical Ethernet port is configured as a WAN (Internet) port, with NAT translation and an outbound firewall rule
  • The second physical Ethernet port is configured as LAN, with network 192.168.1.1/24 (netmask 255.255.255.0) and a DHCP server
