After installing the operating system, prepare the networking connections and configuration for your TeamForge site.
Note: You must have root access to all the hosts you will be setting up for your site.
- Use the
NetworkManagerto list the DNS servers you want to use for resolving Internet addresses.
- Open the appropriate ports, and close all other ports. See Port Requirements.
- Use the hostname command to verify that the machine name is resolvable on the network.
- Use the
nslookupcommand to verify that your hostname maps to the right IP address.
nslookup bigbox.supervillain.org Server: 184.108.40.206 Address: 220.127.116.11#53Tip: If there is any doubt about what the system’s real IP address is, use the /sbin/ifconfig command.
- 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>
- Use a tool such as Nessus to scan your server for potential vulnerabilities. See Port Requirements for detailed security recommendations.
