Install the PA-3200 Series Firewall Using the Rack-Mount Brackets

The following procedure describes how to install the PA-3200 Series firewall in a two-post or four-post equipment rack using the front rack-mount brackets that ship with the firewall. If you install the firewall in a four-post equipment rack and you want to attach the firewall to both front and rear posts, you can Install the PA-3200 Series Firewall Using the Four-Post Rack Kit (sold separately).
When you install the firewall in a two-post equipment rack, ensure that the rack is properly anchored and can support the weight of the installed equipment without tipping.
  1. Attach one rack-mount bracket to each side of the firewall using four #8-32 x 5/16” screws for each bracket and torque each screw to 15 in-lbs. You can install the rack-mount brackets in the front-mount or mid-mount positions to install the firewall in either a two-post or four-post equipment rack but we recommend the following:
    • Two-post rack
      —Install the brackets in the mid-mount position.
    • Four-post rack
      —Install the brackets in the front-mount position.
  2. With help from another person, hold the firewall in the rack and secure the rack-mount brackets to the rack posts using four screws for each bracket. Use the appropriate screws (#10-32 x 3/4” or #12-24 x 1/2”) for your rack and torque each screw to 25 in-lbs. Use cage nuts (not provided) to secure the screws if the rack has square holes.
