    For the Legacy EAGLE gateway you will also need to enter your Cloud ID which is the last 6 alpha numeric characters of the Ethernet MAC address of your gateway. You can find it in the cloud portal, in settings > Internet.

    If you want to connect locally to your Legacy Eagle rather than through the cloud, choose Legacy EAGLE - Local. For this to work you will need to disable local security. Log into the local web portal of your gateway, click the down arrow next to date, at the bottom of the page click the gear, and uncheck the security box:
