APC RT8000 UPS Bypass light Orange

We purchased and open box APC UPS model RT-8000 Rack mount unit.  Got power to it, and the batteries now say they are fully charged, but the Bypass light is orange.  I don't know what Bypass is or how to get to funtion like a typical UPS out of the box.  Is this something someone has set within the web interface?  What does bypass mean and how do i get out of it?

If I need to connect to the web interface, how do I reset the IP as I'm sure I won't know that either...

Bypass mode - direct connection of input and output (ups is bypassed). May be Normal/Bypass switch is in Bypass position? If so, switch it to Normal.

Yep, just found the manual and read that.  Wish it showed where the bypass switch was, but we found it.  Not sure why it was on to begin with.  Thanks!
