Installation Guide
ProSecure™ Unified Threat Management (UTM) Appliance
Models UTM5, UTM10, UTM25, UTM50, and UTM150
Thank you for selecting NETGEAR products.
Follow the instructions in this installation guide to connect the UTM using a single
WAN interface, to use the Setup Wizard to configure the basic network and
scanning settings, and to register the UTM and activate its licenses.
The UTM models differ in the number of LAN and WAN ports that they provide. For
information about the different models and about how to configure other options
such as multiple WAN settings (not applicable to the UTM 5 and UTM10), the
firewall, VPN tunnels, and custom scanning, see the reference manual.
You can access the reference manual from the UTM’s web management interface,
through the resource CD, and from the NETGEAR support site at

Connect the UTM
The front panel of the UTM contains ports and status LEDs; the back panel of the
UTM contains a console port, Factory Defaults reset button, cable lock receptacle,
and AC power connection.
The following figure shows the front panel of the UTM150. The front panels of other
models differ only in the number of LAN and WAN ports.
To connect the UTM:
Connect a WAN port to a cable or DSL modem, satellite dish, wireless ISP
radio antenna, or other WAN device that has an active WAN connection.
Connect a LAN port to a computer that is configured as a DHCP client.
Turn on the UTM by connecting one end of the AC power cable to the AC
receptacle on the back panel of UTM and the other end to a power outlet. After
about 1 minute, verify the following:
Power LED
. The Power LED is solid green.
Test LED
. The amber Test LED is lit. The Test LED turns off when the
initialization process is completed, approximately 2 minutes after you have
turned on the UTM.
. The left LED of the connected WAN port is lit. If it is not, make
sure that the Ethernet cable is securely attached to the WAN device and the
WAN port, and that the WAN device is on.
. The left LED of the connected LAN port is on. If it is not, make
sure that the Ethernet cable from the computer to the UTM is securely
attached at both ends, and that the computer is on.
If any of these LEDs are not lit, or if the Test LED does not turn off, see
Chapter 12, “Troubleshoot and Use Online Support,” of the reference manual.

see Chapter 2, “Use the Setup Wizard to Provision the UTM in Your Network,” of the
reference manual.
Register the UTM and Activate the Licenses
To receive threat management component updates and use telephone support, you
need to register your UTM with NETGEAR. You might have purchased the UTM
with a 1- or 3-year license. The UTM also comes with four 30-day trial licenses:
Web protection
Email protection
Support and maintenance
Application control and IPS
If your UTM is unregistered, you can use the 30-day trial period for all four types of
licenses to perform the initial testing and configuration.
Activating the licenses initiates their terms of use. Activate the licenses only when
you are ready to start using the UTM. The 30-day trial licenses are revoked once
you activate the purchased licenses.
To register the UTM and activate the trial or purchased licenses:
Make sure that the UTM has Internet access.
Open the web management interface.
Support > Registration
. The Registration screen displays.
Enter one of the license keys in the Registration Key field.
Complete the fields in the Customer Information and VAR Information sections
of the screen.

. Activates a
license and registers the UTM with the

Electronic Licensing Option
If you have purchased the UTM with a 1- or 3-year license, you might be able to use

need to enter only your customer information and optional value-added reseller
(VAR) information on the Register screen but do not need to enter the license
numbers. When you click the Register button, the UTM automatically downloads
and activates the license keys because the serial number of the UTM is linked to the
If you have purchased a license from a VAR (either directly or over the web)
purchase of the UTM, the VAR should email you the license keys or provide them to
you in another way. To register and activate the license keys, follow the regular
registration procedure as explained in the previous section (see steps 1–7).
