SSH Tectia

Configuration Task Flow

SSH Tectia G3 configurations are handled differently from other configurations in SSH Tectia Manager. An SSH Tectia G3 configuration can stay in edit state between administration interface sessions and changes to the configuration do not take effect until the configuration is commited.

It is also possible to view previously commited revisions of SSH Tectia G3 configurations, and to compare previously commited configurations to each other or to the configuration under editing. See Viewing and Comparing Configurations (SSH Tectia G3).

The names of SSH Tectia G3 configurations under editing are shown in green and the settings can be changed on the configuration subpages. The names of SSH Tectia G3 configurations that have been commited are shown in black, and the settings can be only viewed on the configuration subpages.

SSH Tectia G3 configurations have the following structure:

SSH Tectia G3 client and server configurations

SSH Tectia Client G3

The client configuration task flow for SSH Tectia Client G3 is illustrated in Figure 8.2.

Defining SSH Tectia Client G3 configurations

Figure 8.2. Defining SSH Tectia Client G3 configurations

  1. Create a new configuration object or open an existing configuration for editing. Define the general, PKI, logging, connection, and transparent tunneling settings.

  2. Optionally, create connection profiles that define special settings for each Secure Shell server the client is connecting to. The profile names must be unique.

  3. Commit the changes to the configuration.

Assign and deploy the configuration set as described in Assigning Configurations per Group and Deploying Configurations.

[Note]Note

Only a configuration that has been commited can be deployed to a SSH Tectia Client/ConnectSecure host. Pressing Save is required after changing check boxes or text fields in the configuration pages, but unlike SSH Tectia Client and SSH Tectia Server 4.x configurations, the saved settings are not immediately deployable.

The server configuration task flow is illustrated in Figure 8.4.

Defining SSH Tectia Server G3 configurations

Figure 8.4. Defining SSH Tectia Server G3 configurations

  1. Create a new configuration object or open an existing configuration for editing. Define the general, PKI, logging, and connection settings.

  2. Create one or more rules and define the selectors for each rule. Selectors define the user group that will use that particular rule. Define the authentication, basic services, SFTP, and tunneling settings for the rule.

  3. Commit the changes to the configuration.

Assign and deploy the configuration set as described in Assigning Configurations per Group and Deploying Configurations.

[Note]Note

Only a configuration that has been commited can be deployed to a SSH Tectia Server host. Pressing Save is required after changing check boxes or text fields in the configuration pages, but unlike SSH Tectia Client and SSH Tectia Server 4.x configurations, the saved settings are not immediately deployable.
