About the WatchGuard Toolbar
There are three servers that do Firebox® management functions:
Management Server
•Log Server
WebBlocker Server
You start, stop, and configure these Management Servers using the WatchGuard® toolbar. The Watch-
Guard toolbar is one of the toolbars at the bottom of your computer screen.
From left to right, the icons on the toolbar manage these servers:
Log Server — This server collects log messages, event messages, alarms, and diagnostic messages
from Firebox X Edge, WFS, and Fireware-based devices. The native storage format is XML (plain
text). For information on Log Server, see the chapter “Reviewing and Working with Log Files” in
this guide.
Management Server — The WatchGuard Management Server (previously the WatchGuard DVCP
server) runs on a Windows computer. This computer can be the same one where the WatchGuard
management software is installed or a different computer. There are tools included to help with the
migration of a DVCP server from a Firebox to your computer. For information on using this wizard,
see the “Getting Started” chapter in this guide.
WebBlocker Server — This server works with the Firebox HTTP proxy to restrict user access to
particular web sites. For information on WebBlocker, see the configuration guide for your
appliance software.
