Install the Okta Privileged Access gateway

Before you begin

Verify that the gateway server can do the following.

  • Download packages from scaleft.com
  • Listen for incoming connections from clients.

    If you’re installing the gateway on a cloud provider like AWS, you may need to modify your security group rules.

  • Connect directly to your destination servers (also known as SSH target hosts).
  • Provide 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 RDP connections routed through a gateway.
