Install the Advanced Server Access gateway

Before you begin

Verify that the gateway server:

  • Can download packages from
  • 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.

Ubuntu 20.04, 22.04, RHEL 8, or RHEL 9 is required for AD-joined and RDP connections that are routed through a gateway.
