Install the Advanced Server Access gateway

You can install the Advanced Server Access gateway on the following platforms:

  • Amazon Linux
  • CentOS 7 and 8
  • Debian 9 to 11
  • FreeBSD 11 to 13
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 to 8
  • Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04, and 20.04

Before you begin

Verify that the gateway server:

  • Can download packages from scaleft.com.
  • Can listen for incoming connections from clients.
    Note: If you’re installing the gateway on a cloud provider like AWS, you may need to modify your security group rules.
  • Can connect directly to your destination servers (also known as SSH target hosts).
  • Has adequate storage space to store your session logs.
  • Is running the Network Time Protocol (NTP) service and correctly synchronized to external NTP pool servers.
