OmniWAN Configuration

After signing up for the Jungle Disk Unified Threat Management service, you will receive an email with the next steps on how to proceed. Once you receive the email on how to log into the MDS Manager website (, you can configure your OmniWAN. You can reset your password on the portal to login. When 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. 

First click on the gear icon to set the location of where your device will be located. After saving the location click on the Home tab to proceed.

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.login3.png

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

Next, on the "Zones" tab, you can customize your wired network(s). Please keep in mind that Port 1 will be used for WAN and Port 6 is for your LAN.

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 "URL Override Rules" option will let you choose sites for the OmniWAN 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. 

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.

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


Next up is the "Remote Access" tab. 

The "Port Forwarding" option lets you create a port forwarding rules in the case you need to add them on the OmniWAN. 

SSL VPN Users 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. 


Next will be the "OmniWAN" tab. This is where you run an Optimization on your device. This is the process that will analyze traffic for a short period of time and then ensure that the tunnel is optimized to handle that specific traffic. We recommend a 10 minute window as this will make the network unavailable temporarily.

"WAN 1" can be used if you need to set a static IP on your OmniWAN. We recommend connecting the device to a pre-existing network and then setting the static IP information so it can upload those changes before implementing into your infrastructure.
