Configuration

In order to configure your EZ BoxTM, you must first adopt it to your account. The Adoption process is used to define the administrator of the EZ BoxTM device. Once the EZ BoxTM has been adopted, the device can only be managed by its administrator.

Please note that, for security reasons, the first adoption of the EZ BoxTM must happen within 5 minutes after the box has been turned on and is online. If you pass this security time threshold, you will need to repeat the Adoption procedure by powering OFF the device for 2 minutes and then turning it ON again. At this point, you will be able to adopt your new EZ BoxTM device a second time.

Prerequisite

The EZ BoxTM can be used on any network on which are respected the following prerequisites:

  • The EZ BoxTM WAN and LAN interfaces can be configured with Private IPv4 addresses only.
  • The WAN network must be provided with a local DHCP service that provides Private IPv4 addresses. DHCP service is mandatory for the initial EZ BoxTM adoption only. The configuration of a manual private IPv4 address is allowed after the adoption of the EZ BoxTM
  • For security reasons, the EZ BoxTM devices can be managed remotely using the management interface only, and the EZ BoxTM must have access to the Internet using Port 443/TCP
  • When the EZ BoxTM device is configured in Router Mode, LAN network IP addresses must use different network addresses than the WAN network.
  • Remote users (the user that connects remotely to the EZ BoxTM device) need to use different network addresses that are used by the EZ BoxTM device.

General network recommendations

  • Connect your EZ BoxTM device on a network provided with a DHCP service. You can set manually the IP address when the EZ BoxTM as been adopted.
  • If the EZ BoxTM is configured in router mode, we strongly recommend using the LAN network with an uncommon or random private network address from the 10.0.0.0/8 block. An example of an uncommon network range can be 10.190.45.0/24. Any other Private IPv4 address can be used as long as it is different from the customer network and the network used by the operator will connect the EZ BoxTM from the remote. This is not a restriction of the EZ BoxTM device but is a limitation of the TCP/IP network protocol. Contact your network administrator to know what remote private IP network can be used for your EZ BoxTM while configured in router mode.
  • Double check in advance with the administrator of the remote network on which the EZ BoxTM will be installed in order to be sure the LAN IP address range you are going to configure is different from the customer network IP address range.
  • An operator that needs to connect remotely to an EZ BoxTM to access the remote device must be aware that the local network and the remote network must be configured with different IP addresses. This is not a restriction of the EZ BoxTM device but is a limitation of the TCP/IP network protocol.

Adoption

By selecting the "Adopt your EZ BoxTM" from the left side menu on the management website, you can "adopt" and configure your EZ BoxTM.

  1. Click Adopt your EZ Box menu.
<ezbox></ezbox> Adopt menu

Step 1

This is the first step in the EZ BoxTM configuration process.

  1. Type the EZ BoxTM Name.

    This is the name assigned to your EZ BoxTM. The name can also be edited later on after the adoption process.

  2. Type the EZ BoxTM ID.

    The EZ BoxTM ID is located on the EZ BoxTM device label.

  3. Type the Activation code.

    Enter the license key you received via email after the purchase of the device. You can also locate the license key on your reserved area under the EZ VPNTM shop. Please note that this field is optional and. if left blank, a 30 day license trial plan will be activated by default.

  4. Click Next to proceed to step 2.

<ezbox></ezbox> Adopt information

Step 2

In step 2, you need to select the geographic area (continent) where the EZ BoxTM will be installed. This option helps us locate the nearest EZ VPN servers and obtain the best network performance.

  1. Select the Preferred geographic area.
  2. Click Next button to proceed to step 3.

Please note, If for example the device will be temporarily configured in the USA and then installed in Europe, we recommend selecting Europe as the geographic area.

<ezbox></ezbox> Adopt region
Important: the Preferred geographic area can not be changed after the Adoption process. In order to change the geographic area of an adopted EZ BoxTM device, you need to delete the EZ BoxTM device and Adopt it again.

Please note. When you delete an EZ BoxTM device, you will still be able to find its information under the “abandoned EZ BoxTM” section on the left navigation bar of the management interface.

Step 3

In step 3, select what network configuration you want to use:


  • "Bridge Mode"

    Use this network configuration when you want to remotely access an existing network. It could be your office/home network, your customer network, or an existing industrial machine or system network. Connect the network cable between the router and the WAN port of the EZ BoxTM device. All users' clients connecting from outside the network can access the remote network as if they were connected directly to the switch.

    <ezbox></ezbox> Adopt bridge

  1. Select Connect to an existing network.
  2. Click Adopt button to adopt the EZ BoxTM or
  3. click Next button to proceed to step 4 and set the Advanced Settings.
<ezbox></ezbox> Adopt bridge
  • "Router Mode"

    Choose this option to create an isolated network. This configuration is useful when you want to remotely connect to a machine or a system with multiple machines or IP devices and you want to isolate this new network from an existing network. Connect your EZ BoxTM using a network cable between the router of the existing network (company network with internet access) and the WAN port of the EZ BoxTM and a second network cable for the new network switch where all network IP devices (PLC, HMI, Sensors, Printers) are connected and the LAN port of the EZ BoxTM. With this configuration, the network to which the machines are connected is safe and reachable only via VPN, leaving them off the internet and not exposed to potential security attacks.

    <ezbox></ezbox> Adopt bridge

  1. Select Create a new isolated network.
  2. Type the IP address of the EZ BoxTM LAN port.
  3. Select the Netmask for the LAN network.
  4. Click Adopt button to adopt the EZ BoxTM.
  5. No configurable Advanced Setting can be set for Router Mode.
<ezbox></ezbox> Adopt router

Step 4

Step 4 is optional and is used to configure Advanced Settings.

  1. Portability is checked by default:

    This feature allows you to physically disconnect the EZ BoxTM device from one network, connect it to another network and allow it to adapt to the new network without having to configure it again. This feature is always enabled in router mode.

  2. Use remote DNS is checked by default:

    With this feature checked while connected to the VPN, you will use a remote DNS Server. If this feature is unchecked, you will use the local network DNS. This feature is always disabled (unchecked) in router mode.

  3. Click Adopt button to adopt the EZ BoxTM.

If you are enabling the WiFi features for the first time, it may take up to five minutes for your EZ BoxTM to do a complete update.

Do not power off your EZ BoxTM during the WiFi enabling process.

EZ BoxTM will be restarted at any password change.

Once EZ BoxTM has completed the configuration, you will be able to access the EZ BoxTM wireless network by connecting to “EZ VPN – xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx” wireless SSID. Please note the xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx characters represent the EZ BoxTM MAC address. You can find this information on the bottom of your EZ BoxTM device.

Note that Data Stash can be used by any of your EZ Boxes that are adopted to your account.

If you disable Auto Data Stash and your device has reached the data plan limit, EZ BoxTM will stop automatically. In this case, you can purchase additional “Data Stash”, enable the Auto Data Stash function on the EZ BoxTM , and click on the Start VPN button to restart the VPN. Please note that Data Stash has no expiration date. 1GB Data Stash multiples are used when your data plan limit has been reached for the month.

Auto Data Stash setting applies to the single EZ BoxTM and does not apply automatically to all EZ BoxTM on your account. This feature can be enabled and disabled per single EZ BoxTM.
