I acquired a firebox x500 series router. Boots up states it has fireware 10.2. I am new to the watchguard product. Thought they had web based configuration but no. I am trying to reset it to either factory or set it up using the getting started wizard. I have firebox system manager 7.4 which they put on a cd to be installed. I get to the point where it says to power up the firewall and the software just hangs there.
I have a cross-over cable going from ethernet on computer to Ethernet port 1 on router. Have a console cable connected between the 2. I set the computer with a static ip 192.168.253.3 and run thru the wizard but can't get past Power up device waiting. I boot it into safe mode and can ping 192.168.253.1 after I set the ip config on Ethernet 1 to match the above. Help is appreciated.
