When you receive your MPX appliance, you unpack the appliance and prepare the site and rack. After you determine that the location where you will install your appliance meets the environmental standards and the server rack is in place according to the instructions, you install the hardware. After you mount the appliance, you connect it to the network, to a power source, and to the console terminal that you use for the initial configuration of NetScaler Gateway. After you turn on the appliance, you perform the initial configuration, and assign management and network IP addresses. Be sure to observe the cautions and warnings listed with the installation instructions.
