After installing the operating system, prepare the networking connections and configuration for your TeamForge site.
  1. Use the NetworkManager to list the DNS servers you want to use for resolving Internet addresses.
  2. Open the appropriate ports, and close all other ports. See Port Requirements.
  3. Use the hostname command to verify that the machine name is resolvable on the network.
    hostname
    bigbox.supervillain.org
    
  4. Use the nslookup command to verify that your hostname maps to the right IP address.
    nslookup bigbox.supervillain.org
    Server: 204.16.107.137
    Address: 204.16.107.137#53
    
  5. If you are installing behind a proxy, specify your proxy settings.
    export http_proxy=http://<PROXY_USERNAME>:<PROXY_PASSWD>@<PROXY_HOST>:<PROXY_PORT>
    export no_proxy=localhost,127.0.0.0/8,<hostname>
    
  6. Use a tool such as Nessus to scan your server for potential vulnerabilities. See Port Requirements for detailed security recommendations.
