10.5.6. Configuring installer if you use root account to manage the firewall:

  • Create directory /etc/fw/ on the firewall, make it belong to root, make it writable.

  • Set up ssh access to the firewall. Make sure you can log in as root using ssh from your management workstation:

    $ ssh -l root <firewall_name>

    You may use either password or public key authentication; the installer will work either way.

  • In the installer tab of the firewall settings dialog of the firewall object put "root" as the user name you use to log in to the firewall.

  • Make sure entry field directory on the firewall where script should be installed is set to /etc/fw

  • Leave Policy install script and Command line options fields are blank
