NAC Director


Installation of NAC Director is a two-part process. The fi rst is the initial setup and confi guration of the appliance itself. This is done through a short setup wizard. This wizard guides users through the network confi guration and getting the appliance up and running in the environment. The second part is done using a setup wizard as well, and this wizard gathers all the network device information, in addition to password and VLAN confi guration. Both wizards are web-based and are easy to follow.
