If I assign the SZ a RFC1918 P address and do not allow it to access the WWW the initial configuration locks up. If I leave the NTP server blank I cannot continue to the next step. Is there a work around?
Do you have an internal server that can provide NTP. Does you firewall http NTP server enabled? at worst case use setup a temporary device to act as you NTP server and ensure that it has had its time set correctly.
