Configure Admin /etc/hosts entry

In order to initially access Access Gateway add the following entries to your local /etc/hosts file.

Under OSX/Linux this file can be found in /etc/hosts.
Under Windows the file can be found in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.

Add entries:
ip of instance  admin

ip of instance  gw-admin[.yourdomain.tld]

Note

Note

Once configured the Access Gateway Admin UI console should be reachable using the https://admin from a local browser.


For example:

# . . .   
# Example IP address of Okta Access Gateway
192.168.32.129	admin
192.168.32.129 gw-admin.mysite.mycompany.com

Important Note

These two entries are used for development purposes only. In production environments the admin entry would be removed after the Access Gateway Admin UI console has been initialized.
In addition the gw-admin entry would normally be entered into DNS. For more information on Access Gateway DNS use see About Access Gateway DNS use.
