The browser-based interface of the WANJet appliance is called the Configuration utility. The first screen that you see when you log on to the Configuration utility (once you have run the Setup utility) is the Welcome screen, which displays in the main browser frame. This screen provides links to documentation, setup options, support resources, and additional downloads.
Figure 4.1 uses the Welcome screen to show the parts of the Configuration utility.
The dashboard in the upper left corner of the screen displays status indicators. This area is always visible, regardless of where you are in the Configuration utility. Figure 4.2 shows the dashboard in various states.
WANJet Links
Shows the number of links to remote WANJet appliances, and a colored bar showing the status of remote WANJet appliances:
Yellow indicates that this system has links to more than one remote WANJet appliance and only some links are active.
For more information about link status, click WANJet Links to display the WANJet Links report. For more information, see WANJet Links diagnostics.
For information about status and the number of optimized and passthrough sessions, point to the dashboard. A message shows the status of the links, and if active, the number of TCP sessions that the WANJet appliance is currently optimizing (including all established sessions plus those in the process of being optimized) and the number of passthrough sessions.
Operational Mode
Shows the state of the WANJet appliance, whether it is Active or Inactive.
Redundant Status
Displays the status of the redundant peer, if one is configured on the WANJet appliance.
The dashboard refreshes every10 seconds, providing a snapshot of system activity at the current time. You may see different numbers on the dashboard and the reporting screens (described in Chapter 12, Monitoring the WANJet Appliance) because connections are established and terminated very frequently.
The navigation pane is the area on the Main tab at the left of the screen. It includes four sections that you can expand:
Provides links for you to view the Welcome page and performance reports.
WAN Optimization
Provides links to screens where you can configure optimization policies, Application QoS policies, and optimization settings, and view diagnostic reports.
Provides links to screens that allow you to configure interfaces, add routes, and view network statistics.
Provides links to screens for you to view or modify the system and platform configuration.
To view other Configuration utility screens, expand a section in the navigation pane on the left side of the screen, and click an option. Information displays in the main area of the screen. For example, to view optimization policies, in the navigation pane, expand WAN Optimization and click Optimization Policy. The WANJet Protocol Optimization Policy screen opens in the main screen.
The main screen is the area of the Configuration utility that contains reports showing information about WANJet appliance operations, or fields where you can configure how the WANJet appliance works.
You display online help by clicking the Help tab at the top of the navigation pane. The Help tab displays information about the current screen, including details on each of the settings, tables, buttons, and other screen elements.
If you are having trouble with the Configuration utility of the WANJet appliance, try refreshing the browser using the browser Refresh button.
If your web browser cannot access the Configuration utility, it may be because Configuration utility access is restricted to a limited range of IP addresses. See Configuring access to the web interface. You may have to log on from a different location from which access is allowed.
You may be using the incorrect IP address. If you configured a Management IP address, you should use that IP address to log on. You can check the configuration of the WANJet appliance from the LCD. For details on configuring the WANJet appliance from the LCD, refer to the Quick Start Guide for your platform.
Try pinging the IP address you are using to log on to the WANJet appliance. Also try accessing the WANJet appliance from the command line to be sure it is operational. Refer to Chapter 14, Working from the Command Line.
If you have considered other options and are still having problems with the WANJet appliance (such as logging on to the Configuration utility), you can reboot the appliance. Refer to Shutting down and restarting the WANJet appliance.
