SSH Tectia

Chapter 3 Getting Started with SSH Tectia Manager

This chapter instructs how to get started with SSH Tectia Manager using the web-based administration interface. All the management and configuration tasks are performed via the administration interface.

First we introduce logging in to the administration interface and making the necessary configurations for the administrators, and then create the host views and groups. The host views and their groups are the basis for all host management operations as well as for the administrator access rights in SSH Tectia Manager.

The steps presented in this chapter can be done as the superuser created in Initial Configuration for Management Server. However, it is recommended to create less-privileged administrator accounts to carry out everyday tasks as described in Chapter 4.
