During initial setup of the Celona Edge Appliance use the local edge manager web ui to configure:

  • DHCP/Static IP Mode

  • Management Interface

  • LAN Interface

  • Hostname

Limited troubleshooting is available from this interface.

Getting Started

Power up and connect the Celona Edge Appliance to your network, the image below details which ports to use for each model.

The data port should be connected to a gigabit trunk port on your switch, connect the management port directly to your laptop for initial configuration.

DHCP server is running on the management interface so that a user does not have to configure static IP to the device connected to an edge via the management interface.

Connect to the Local Management UI via your web browser.

username: admin

password: Celona123

Update password

It is strongly recommended to change this password on first use. Select 'Change Password from the left-hand menu to proceed.

Health Check

The default landing page is the "Health Check" page. If no IP is assigned to the data interface, "Network Configuration" becomes the landing page.

AP specific health check is also added in the "Health Check" page. Health check page has been enhanced with the “corrective action” column as well.

Network Configuration

Configure Static or DHCP mode for the data connection to your LAN by selecting the 'Network Configuration' menu item.

For DHCP mode ensure the checkbox is marked and submit. We recommended that Celona Edge Appliance receive a reserved IP address.

Uncheck DHCP mode to enter your static IP address, IP gateway and DNS info. Hostname must be lowercase. Management IP configures the address of the management interface. Edge manager will prompt for a reboot message if there is a change in network or hostname provided.


Celona Support may request you to access the 'Troubleshooting' section in the Local Edge Manager.
