Web GUI

When you first log in to the DSM's Web GUI, you see a graphical layout of all DSCs and their status, as well as the devices they connect to. Note the options on the left to sort by geographical location as well as any number of filters such as client name.

Configuration

After clicking on Configure and then the branch office DSC, I could configure network, device and system information. This is where most of the configuration takes place. Note that after clicking Save Profile, one must click Cancel to return to the main page of the GUI.
