For information regarding how to register a ProxySG, please see 000010608.
When a Blue Coat product is received, you may or may not receive an activation code to accompany your product. Here are examples (this is not an all-inclusive list) of when you would receive an activation code with a Blue Coat product that you purchased:
- Content filtering subscriptions, such as Blue Coat Web Filter (BCWF) or other content filters that run on the proxy
- ProxyAV subscriptions, such as McAfee, Kaspersky, Panda, or Sophos
- SSL licenses and/or upgrades
- ProxySG model upgrades, such as an upgrade from an SG210-5 to an SG210-25
- PacketShaper feature upgrades, compression, and acceleration
- Reporter Enterprise license
So if a Blue Coat appliance has been purchased and none of the other items were also purchased, then there will not be any activation codes included with your purchase. If you received something that does require and activation code, you will receive an email or letter with the information necessary to activate that new feature. Here is a sample email that you may receive:
