Install the SafeLinx Server before you install the SafeLinx Administrator.

About this task

On Linux, after you extract the SafeLinx Administrator archive, its contents are placed in the directoryinst.images.

On Windows, the SafeLinx Server archive file includes both the SafeLinx Server and SafeLinx Administrator. Optionally, if you plan to install SafeLinx Administrator and SafeLinx Server on different computers, you can download SafeLinx Administrator separately.

On Linux, the SafeLinx Administrator archive file contains the Java package as well as the SafeLinx Administrator package. If you do not have a Java runtime environment (JRE) installed, install the Java package first, and then install the SafeLinx Administrator.

To install SafeLinx Administrator, run the installation program as described in the following procedure.


  1. On Windows, double-click the extracted file to begin the installation and then follow the prompts.
  2. On Linux, use the package manager to install the Java and SafeLinx Administrator RPM files. For example, type the following commands from the command line:

    rpm -ivh hcl-java-i386-jre-7.0-7.1.i386.rpm

    rpm -ivh HCLwgcfg-6.1-5.2.i386.rpm

  3. After the installation completes, from the SafeLinx Administrator menu, click Help > About to verify the SafeLinx Administrator version.
