Retrieving the configuration parameters VendorId and ProductIdInit

  1. Log on to the firewall console via SSH using a Putty program.
  2. Enable debug mode for the 3G/4G modem manager using the command:

sysctl hw.usb.u3g.debug=1

  1. Connect your modem to the firewall's USB port.
  2. Enter the command:

ndmesg

  1. Identify the lines that begin with the string u3g_test_autoinst and note the parameters between brackets after the name of the modem vendor:

Example:

[2018-01-10 09:19:24] ugen4.2: <XXXX> at usbus4
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] u3g_test_autoinst: checking if device XXXX:XXXX(12d1:15cf) is a umass device and needs to be ejected
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] u3g_test_autoinst: device XXXX:XXXX(12d1:15cf) was not matched => will not be ejected
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] umass0: <Mass Storage> on usbus4
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 scbus2 target 0 lun 1
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] da0: <XXXX TF CARD Storage 2.31> Removable Direct Access SCSI-2 device
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] da0: Serial Number 0123456789ABCDEF
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] da0: 40.000MB/s transfers
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] da0: Attempt to query device size failed: NOT READY, Medium not present
[2018-01-10 09:19:24] da0: quirks=0x2<NO_6_BYTE>

For the modem in this example, the VendorId is "12d1" and the ProductIdInit "15cf".
