How To Assign An IP Address to McAfee's Advanced Threat Defense (ATD)


This document will guide you through the process of connecting your ATD 3000 to your network.

You can also watch the steps described in this document by viewing the video below.





I. Setup


1. In order to connect your ATD 3000 to your network, you will need to get console access to give the ATD an IP address. To do that, we need to connect to what is labeled as number 8 in the diagram below. This is the console port, which we can connect to a laptop directly or to a terminal server. In this instance, we are connecting to a terminal server.

2. Below is a table of the connection settings that should be used:

      • Baud rate: 115200
      • Number of Bits: 8
      • Parity: None
      • Stop Bits: 1
      • Control Flow: None

II. Assign IP Address to ATD


1. In this instance, we're using a product called Raritan which allows us to plug multiple devices into our terminal server. The first thing we are going to do is log into the ATD using the ATD admin account: the username is cliadmin; the password is atdadmin.

In more recent versions of ATD (post 3.2) the login id is cliadmin, before that it was atdadmin


2. Hitting the question mark "?" on your keyboard will give you a list of commands that are available. One such command is the "set" command, which we will be using today, specifically for the IP address and the gateway.

3. Type in both the IP address and the gateway, which in this case is /16.

4. Next, set the appliance gateway.

5. Before you login to the user interface, set your management port settings to make sure that t hey are configured for the switch you will be using. You can set "mgmtport" to auto, which will more than likely take care of whatever connection speed that you have.

6. If you would like to hard set your connection speed, you can set "mgmtport speed" to "1000 duplex full."

7. At this point, mgmtport is set, and your switch settings match your port settings on your ATD box. We can go ahead and type the command "show," which will display the settings that have been configured.

8. Finally, we can ping the network security manager just to test the network connectivity.

III. Login to ATD

1. Now you can login using the IP address that has just been assigned to ATD. In this instance, it is

2. Click "Proceed anyway"

3. Use the default username and password, which is: username: admin; password: admin.  After logging

     in you'll be prompted to change your password after version 3.4.8

4. Now you can start configuring ATD to analyze malware.
