Part 1 - Setup TRASA server and root account

In this first part, we will cover installation and setup of TRASA server.

Before Installation

  1. Linux server

    We've created 1 core 2 GB ram 20 GB storage Ubuntu server. We will call this server Nepsec TRASA server. Once this server is ready, install and setup Openssh server and Docker in this server.

  2. Domain name

    We've setup DNS with A record which points to our server. Setup a domain in your control.



We are using docker install for demonstration. For other installation options, refer to Install Guides

SSH to Linux instance (TRASA server) you created in previous step.

# Run Postgresql database
sudo docker run -d -p 5432:5432 --name db -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=trasauser -e POSTGRES_USER=trasauser -e POSTGRES_DB=trasadb postgres
# Run Redis
sudo docker run -d -p 6379:6379 --name redis redis
# Run Guacd Server
sudo docker run -d --rm --name guacd -p -v /tmp/trasa/accessproxy/guac:/tmp/trasa/accessproxy/guac --user root seknox/guacd:v0.0.1
# Run TRASA server
sudo docker run --link db:db \
--link guacd:guacd \
--link redis:redis \
-p 443:443 \
-p 80:80 \
-p 8022:8022 \
-e TRASA.LISTENADDR=TRASA.NEPSEC.IO \ # <- Replace it with your preferred trasa domain name.
-v /tmp/trasa/accessproxy/guac:/tmp/trasa/accessproxy/guac \

Setup Root Account

TRASA server should be ready from previous step. Enter TRASA_HOST in your browser.

In our case, we setup domain so we enter this address in browser.
