This article provides step-by-step instructions to aid administrators through the initial configuration of a primary PGP Universal Server using its Web-based Setup Assistant.
HOW TO: Use the PGP Universal 2.5/2.6 Setup AssistantThe Setup Assistant only appears the first time you access the PGP Universal Server from your web browser. The Setup Assistant displays a series of screens that ask you questions about your network and about how you want your PGP Universal Server to work; the Setup Assistant uses the answers to those questions to finish configuring your PGP Universal Server.
Initial Configuration with Setup AssistantAfter the software installs and the server restarts, you can connect to the PGP Universal Server via a Web browser at the configured IP address and finish running the Setup Assistant.
|Note: Your server preforms many time-based operations, so it is important to set up the correct time.|
|Note: In the Hostname field, enter a name for this PGP Universal Server. This must be a fully-qualified domain name of the external, untrusted interface.
PGP Corporation strongly recommends you name your externally visible PGP Universal Server according to the keys.<domain> convention, which allows other PGP Universal Servers to easily find valid public keys for email recipients in your domain.
|Note: If you chose the pgp or noautopart installation, you will need to reconnect to your Universal Server. At this point, your PGP Universal Server has accepted the new network settings you entered, so it will disconnect the temporary setup. You will need to reconnect to the Server using the https://<hostname>:9000 url.|
Primary or Secondary ConfigurationIf you selected a Primary or Secondary configuration for the PGP Universal Server you are configuring with the Setup Assistant, the Licensing screen appears automatically.
|Note: Ignition Keys protect the data on your PGP Universal Server if an unauthorized person gets control of it. If you want to use a hardware Ignition Key, you will need to prepare the token before you add it to the system here.|
|Note: The PGP Universal Server generates an Organization Key for you. If you want to generate an S/MIME Organization Certificate, you should do so immediately after finishing setup.|
