Configure Admin /etc/hosts entry

To initially access Access Gateway, add the following entry to your local etc.hosts file.
For OSX/Linux, you can find this file in /etc/hosts.
For Windows, you can find the host file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.

See Command Line Console reference > Networking > Show running configuration to determine Access Gateway IP address.

Within this file, add the single entry:
ip of instance  admin

Note

Note

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


For example:

##
# Host Database
# . . . 
# Example IP address of Okta Access Gateway
192.168.32.129	admin

Important Note

Important

You only need the /etc/hosts admin entry for initial configuration and Access Gateway setup. After you finish the configuration, you can remove this value from the local /etc/hosts file.
