The following instructions are for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10.x or SLES 11.
Download and install the Apache 2 and PHP 5 modules:
On your SLES 10.x or SLES 11 server, click theicon, provide your root password if requested, then click .
In the YaST left navigation window, click theicon, then click .
The YaST software Search screen should open.
In the Apache2, then click .field, type
All available Apache 2 software packages are listed.
If they are not already selected, select the following Apache 2 check boxes:
apache2: Specifies the Apache 2.0 Web server.
apache2-mod_php5: Specifies the PHP5 module for Apache 2.0.
apache2-prefork: Specifies the Apache 2 prefork multiprocessing module.
apache2-worker: Specifies the Apache 2 worker multiprocessing module.
Verify that the php5 package is also selected for install, then clickto install that package as well as the other dependent packages.
Configure SUSE to start the Apache server during boot up:
In the YaST left navigation window, click> .
In the HTTP Server Wizard, enable theoption, then click .
Reboot the server or manually start the Apache server.
The Digital Airlines example package contains the following components:
vpn.html: Specifies the GUI interface page for initiating a VPN session.
sales.php: Contains the sales PHP database files associated with the example.
payroll.html: Specifies the GUI interface page for initiating a payroll session.
medical.html: Specifies the GUI interface page for initiating a VPN session.
index.php: Contains the welcome HTML index file for establishing secure authentication.
sales: Specifies a subdirectory that can be configured to require basic authentication.
images: Contains all image files associated with the example.
In this example configuration, you use the Access Gateway to protect the Digital Airlines Web site, which is installed on your Identity Server. This section describes where your example Digital Airlines components are located and how to add them to your Identity Server.
Download the Digital Airlines Sample Pages from the Additional Resources section in the Novell Documentation site.
Extract htdocs.tar.gz to a root directory of the Web server. For an Apache 2 Web server on SLES 10.x or 11, extract the files to the following directory:
Determine the DNS name and IP address of the SUSE Linux server on which your example files are installed:
Log in to the YaST as the root user.
Click> , then write down the IP address and hostname of your server:
IP Address: __________________________
As required later in the installation (see Step 8), you must provide the host name and server configuration information to establish the network connection between the Web server you are protecting (the server where your Web service components are located) and the Access Gateway.
Continue with Section 6.2.3, Configuring Name Resolution.
The Identity Server needs to resolve the DNS name of the Access Gateway, the Access Gateway needs to resolve the DNS name of the Identity Server, and the client that is accessing the Digital Airlines site needs to be able to resolve the names of both the Access Gateway and the Identity Server.
You can either set up your DNS server to resolve the DNS name of the Identity Server and the Access Gateway to the correct IP address, or you need to modify the hosts file on the various machines to perform the resolution.
Each platform has its own location for the host file.
Client: The hosts file of the client machine needs to contain entries for the Identity Server and the Access Gateway.
Identity Server: The hosts file on the Identity Server needs to contain an entry for the Access Gateway.
Access Gateway: The hosts file on the Access Gateway needs to contain an entry for the Identity Server.
Access Gateway Appliance: Do not manually edit the hosts file on the Access Gateway Appliance. The file is overwritten every time the configuration is updated with the entries specifies on the Hosts page. To add an entry to the Hosts page, click > > > then click . The entries on this page are written to the file when the configuration is updated.
Access Gateway Service: You can edit the hosts file on the Access Gateway Service. Add an entry that allows the Access Gateway Service to resolve the name of the Identity Server.
