I installed the SWA in the Institute of Food and Agricultural Services (IFAS) server room next door to the University of Florida Real-World Labs® to test how it would handle traffic in a production environment. Initial setup through a simple menu system was complete after configuring the IP for the management port, SWA host and domain name, DNS servers and trusted hosts allowed to manage the SWA.
