The two firewire ports are for daisy chaining.
you can connect another firebox to the one you already have so that you get more i/o.

definition:
 - A daisy chain is an interconnection of computer devices, peripherals, or network nodes in series, one after another. It is the computer equivalent of a series electrical circuit. In personal computing, examples of "daisy-chainable" interfaces include Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and FireWire, which allow computers to communicate with peripheral hardware such as disk drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, printers, and scanners faster and more flexibly than previous interfaces. 

The main advantage of the daisy chain is its simplicity. Another advantage is scalability. The user can add more nodes anywhere along the chain, up to a certain maximum (16 in SCSI-2 or SCSI-3, for example). A daisy-chain network can be long in terms of the distance from one end to the other, but is not well suited to situations where nodes must be scattered all over a geographic region. In such a case, the cables must zig-zag around, and the overall length of the network can become huge compared with the actual distances between the nodes. This can cause the network to operate slowly for users near opposite ends of the chain.

Presonus Firebox doesn't sync up.


1. check the drivers update for you device
This is found at the manufacturers site.
2. See if your device is compatible with the OS (operating system) on your laptop.
3. Check the connecting cable to see if you have a broken wire inside the "strain relief".
The cord at this point will have a puffy part that indicate that there is a broken cable.

Make sure you also open the ports on your router. IF you have all the appropriate ports open and still have strict NAT, it's more than likely your ISP and you should give them a call.

I have a Watchguard Firebox x10e and i can not log into it


To recover your Firebox X Edge e-Series device, you must first reset the Edge to its factory default settings, and then FTP the Edge v10.x appliance software to the Edge.
To set the Firebox X Edge e-Series to the factory default settings:
  1. Disconnect the power supply.
  2. Hold down the Reset button on the rear side of the Edge.
  3. Connect the power supply while you continue to hold down the Reset button.
  4. Continue to hold down the button until the yellow Attn light stays on. This shows you that the Edge was successfully restored to the factory default settings.
    This process can take 45 seconds or more.
To FTP the Edge v10.x appliance software to the Edge:
  1. Copy the Edge v10 upgrade file (yakfw.sysa-dl) to the root of your C: drive.
  2. Edit the network settings on your computer so that it is part of the 192.168.111.0/24 subnet.
  3. Connect your computer to any of the LAN interfaces on the Edge.
  4. Open a command prompt.
    To open a command prompt, select Start > Run. Type cmd and press Enter.
  5. Type ftp 192.168.111.1 and press Enter. When prompted, enter the user name admin and the password admin. Press Enter.
  6. Type bin. Press Enter.
  7. Type put yakfw.sysa-dl. Press Enter.
  8. Type bye. Press Enter.
  9. Type exit. Press Enter.
    The command prompt window closes.
  10. Power cycle the Edge.

Doesn´t work anymore


Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?

If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.

Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.

The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?

Good luck!

Setting up a VPN through watchguard


The key with any VPN solution is to make sure that the configurations on both ends match. I am not very familiar with this particular product, but it looks like you need to have the proper VPN licenses installed first. There are two types of VPN you can do. 1) Site to Site - This is where the are two static boxes that you want to create an encrypted tunnel between 2) Remote User access - This is where mobile users connect to a central site over an encrypted tunnel from their home or on the road. Next, take a looks at the User Guide PDF here: https://www.watchguard.com/help/documentation/soho6.asp Chapter 10 tells how to configure the VPN on the Firebox side. You would just duplicate your settings if your doing option #1. Chapter 11 tells how to configure the VPN on the client side. This section would tell you how to configure the client software for option #2. Hope this helps.
