Configuring the Client Machine

A client machine is required to configure EnGarde. You will need a crossover cable to make the connection from your PC to the EnGarde machine, or you can put them both on a hub. The only drawbacks are while the system is on a hub it is vulnerable from other machines connected to that hub and the default network settings could interfere with other machines connected to that hub.

To configure you client PC you must first start by disconnecting your client PC from the network. You can simply do this by unplugging its network connection. Then change your PC's network settings. Don't forget to write down your old settings to change back to when you are finished setting up EnGarde.

Change your client PC's network settings to the following:

Once you have changed your settings and the changes have taken effect, you must make sure all your proxy settings are disabled. To disable your proxy settings in both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer please read Appendix [*] Firewalls and Proxy Servers Appendix - Firewalls and Proxy Servers. Once all changes have been made to the proxy settings you will be ready to connect to EnGarde.

If you have difficulty connecting after making the changes above on a Windows client, you may have to disable the Logon to Windows NT Domain option in your network configuration. You can do this by selecting Networking from the Control Panel, then selecting properties for Client for Microsoft Network and unchecking the Logon to Windows NT Domain check-box. You can now hit the OK button to finish. You may be asked to reboot your Windows system.
