I just got a old secure computing utm/firewall model is sidewinder g2 security appliance with a built in hard drive. I have gone to the securecomputting.com website and to my.securecomputing.com to try to find any and all information about how to setup this firewall up. But I could never it get to pull up off a web browser. I have all also open up the case and come to find out it has built in hard drive. How do you set this up and get it working correctly?

I've never encountered this device so I can't help you directly.

However, I've used unfamiliar network devices before.

When you say that you can't access the website of the device, does that mean that you have the IP-address for the device, but if you type that in a browser, you don't get a response?
If this is the case, I would scan the IP address with nmap to discover all open ports, and then try to connect to these ports with Telnet, SSH, HTTP, ...
Since this is an old device, it could just be that the previous admin has disabled the web interface or configured it on a non-standard port.

Many professional network appliances also have a serial communication port used to configure the device with a command line. On Cisco devices this port is labeled as Console.
