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:


  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:


[2018-01-10 09:19:24]ugen4.2: <XXX> at usbus4
[2018-01-10 09:19:24]u3g_test_autoinst: checking if device XXX:XXX (12d1:1f01) is a umass device and needs to be ejected
[2018-01-10 09:19:24]u3g_test_autoinst: device XXX:XXX (12d1:1f01) was not matched => will not be ejected
[2018-01-10 09:19:24]umass0: <Mass Storage> on usbus4

For the modem in this example, the VendorId is "12d1" and the ProductIdInit "1f01".
