Once the installation completes, Yoggie says your PC is fully protected and the quick start guide ends. Presumably you could simply stop at this point and never have to touch the Pico again, however at some point most users will probably want to check out the Yoggie Management Console, if for no other reason then to verify that the device is updating and operating as it should. The device GUI is accessed via a browser window and will prompt you to provide a username and password to log on. The interface is html-based and at first appears to be fairly simple and easy to use. As you jump through the different screens however you will notice many sub-sections and advanced areas that offer a more detailed level of customization.
The Status and Reports tabs offer a high-level management view of how the Pico is performing with easy to read graphs and charts. The counters for these are kept indefinitely although there is the option to manually clear them. The Settings tab is where the bulk of the setup takes place. Although there is a simple slider for basic users to select whether they want a High, Medium or Low level of protection, the advanced button offers the ability to change the functionality of individual components. The Support tab gives a detailed status of the Pico and also offers access to log and help files as well as diagnostic utilities like ping and trace.
Next I will detail some of the advanced features.
