Cloud Link Device Configuration

After signing up for the Jungle Disk Unified Threat Management service, you will receive an email with credentials to log into the MDS Manager website (, where you can configure your Cloud Link device. Once logged in, your screen will look similar to this:

Your device(s) will be listed here, and their names and serial numbers will be displayed. If the device is still in transit, you can also view the tracking info here. 

To configure the device, click the gear icon next to the device you want to configure. You will be presented with your device overview, as seen below:

You can see your dedicated public IP here, if applicable, and a link to access your device remotely if enabled. For now, click "profile".

Here, you can choose a "category" and "industry" that will tailor the Cloud Link for your needs. Choose the option that fits closest for your use case, then hit "Save".

Next is the "Business Systems" tab. Here you can choose and add the systems your business uses so that the Cloud Link device can recognize them. Choose any and all applicable systems, then click "Save".

Next, on the "Networking" tab, you can customize you wireless and wired network(s). Under "Wireless Network", you can use the default wireless network name or enter a custom one. Here, you can also provide a password for your wireless network. 

The "Ethernet Ports" option lets you either enable or disable the Ethernet ports on the Cloud Link device. 

The "DHCP" options let you choose an IP range, and also lets you choose DNS servers.

The "Security" setting toggles the security features on and off. We, of course, recommend leaving this on!

The "Content Filtering" option lets you choose what content is allowed on your network and what is forbidden. You can customize this more, including setting exclusions for certain sites, on the "Advanced" tab. 

Once you make any changes here, make sure you hit "Save" on the bottom of the screen. 

Next up is the "Advanced" tab. 

The "Password Bypass" option lets you create a username and password to bypass the security features of the Cloud Link device. 

The "Security Bypass Rules" option will let you choose sites for the Cloud Link device to bypass its security features on. For example, if you have your content filtering set to "strict", social networking sites will be blocked, but you can add them as security bypass rules if you want people on your network to still access them. 

"Guest WiFi" lets you configure custom guest WiFi connections using different configurations. These can be open or password protected, and have web content filtering enabled or disabled, depending on your use case. 

Remote Access lets you configure a remote VPN tunnel, giving you a secure connection to your network. For more information on these settings, please see our VPN Configuration guide.
