Using the Configuration Panel

Use the configuration panel to change various Express Gate settings.

Click on an icon to open a particular configuration tool. The following tools are 

available:
•  Date and Time: set current date and time as well as time zone.
•  Input Method: choose your preferred input language and method.
•  Language and Keyboard: choose your language and keyboard preferences.
•  LaunchBar Settings: customize your LaunchBar (where it docks, whether it 

auto-hides, etc.)

•  Network: Specify how your computer connects to the Internet. Enable all 

the network ports that you may use (LAN1, LAN2, and/or wireless [optional]). 

LAN1 and LAN2 refer to the two RJ-45 network ports on your computer. 

•  The number of the LAN ports may differ from motherboards.
•  You can connect the LAN cable to either port, and Express Gate  will 

automatically use the connected port.

Also specify whether each port uses DHCP (most common) or static IP. For PPPoE 

and wireless (optional), set the login credentials (user name, password, SSID, 

etc.) as well.

•  Environment Settings: This function allows you to clear the Express Gate 

settings, as well as any personal information stored by the web browser 

(Bookmarks, Cookies, History, etc.). The user data will be reset to the original 

default configuration.  

  After you click Restore System, a confirmation dialog box will open. If you 

click “Yes” in the confirmation dialog box, your system will immediately restart 

and then re-enter Express Gate to finish clearing the settings. This is also 

useful in the rare case where settings might become corrupted.

The first-time Wizard will run again when you enter the Express Gate 

environment after clearing its settings.
