9.4 Default Settings
After VPN Bridge is installed, there are several settings
that first must be configured. This section describes how to
configure these settings with examples of the settings when
using PacketiX VPN Server Manager. The same settings can also be
configured using vpncmd, so as a basic rule, the corresponding
vpncmd command names are also provided. For information about
detailed vpncmd operations, please refer to 「Chapter 6 Command Line Management Utility Manual」.
9.4.1 Changing the Manager Password
At the time VPN Bridge is installed, the manager password for
the entire VPN Bridge is not set. We recommend setting the
manager password as soon as you install VPN Bridge .
The following alert is displayed if the VPN Server manager
password is not set when connecting to VPN Bridge with VPN

9.4.2 Creating a Cascade Connection with a Local Bridge
VPN Bridge serves no purpose as a stand-alone program. To properly
use VPN Bridge, you must configure a local bridge connection between the
physical network adapter on the computer to which VPN Bridge is
installed and the "BRIDGE" Virtual HUB, and then cascade-connect that
Virtual HUB to the destination VPN Server.
For information about configuring these settings, please refer to
「Chapter 3 PacketiX VPN Server 2.0 Manual」, 「Chapter 5 PacketiX VPN Bridge 2.0 Manual」, and 「Chapter 6 Command Line Management Utility Manual」. For detailed information about connecting bases using
VPN Bridge, please refer to 「10.5 Setting Up a LAN-to-LAN VPN (Using Bridge Connections)」 and 「10.6 Setting Up a LAN-to-LAN VPN (Using IP Routing)」.
