4i Edge X is an IoT gateway device, supporting docker and providing unparalleled network security and connectivity. This document is both an User Manual and a Guide to the configuration of the various part of the 4i Edge X web interface and its functionalities.

The latest updates and corrections to this manual, referred to the latest release of the 4i Edge X, will be available online at If you think that you have found any errors, either simple typos or even content errors, feel free to provide us feedback using the Endian’s bug tracker.


Without the great work of the Smoothwall and then of the IPCop team, neither 4i Edge X nor this document would exist. Therefore we would like to thank them all for their hard work.

Thanks to Sourceforge for the hosting. Without Sourceforge we would not have the possibility to gain such a huge worldwide visibility. You are really helping us very much!
