I wish it were that simple.  http://ip-address:2002/ is the format used for http:  Any other Idea. Like why i cant console into the appliance.  Is there a reset button that i can reset to factory defaults?

Regarding the serial console problem, I have seen situations where using a full null modem control cable (instead of just crossing TXD and RXD) is required.

As far as resetting to factory defaults, to do that you would boot off the recovery CD and choose the option to re-image the appliance.
