Install the PA-3200 Series Firewall Using the Rack-Mount
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
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.
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
—Install the brackets in the mid-mount
—Install the brackets in the front-mount
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.
