The following prerequisites are for setting up a basic Access Manager configuration:
An installed Access Manager version of iManager, called the Access Manager Administration Console. See NetIQ Access Manager 3.1 SP5 Installation Guide.
An LDAP directory store with a test user added. This store can be eDirectory, Active Directory, or Sun ONE.
A DNS server or modified host files to resolve DNS names and provide reverse lookups. For information on which host files need to be modified, see Section 6.2.3, Configuring Name Resolution.
A Web server (IIS or Apache). The Web server should have three directories with three HTML pages. The first directory (public) should contain a page (such as index.html) for public access. This page needs to provide two links:
A link to a page in the protected directory. You will configure the Access Gateway to require authentication before allowing access to this page. You do not need to configure the Web server to protect this page.
A link to a page in the basic directory. You should already have configured your Web server to require basic authentication before allowing access to this page. See your Web Server documentation for instructions on setting up basic authentication. (This type of access is optional, but explained because it is fairly common.)
If you do not have a Web server that you can use for this type of access, you might prefer to configure Access Manager for the sample Web pages we provide. See Section 6.0, Digital Airlines Example.
A client workstation with a browser with browser pop-ups enabled.
