Gateway IT Administrator Guide

Introduction to Blue Cedar Gateway

The Gateway IT Administrator's Guide provides the necessary framework for an administrative user to configure and monitor the Blue Cedar Gateway via the Command Line Interface (CLI). The gateway is part of the Blue Cedar Enterprise platform, which securely connects Blue Cedar-secured apps to the enterprise backend.

The guide describes the commands to configure and monitor the gateway, along with how to navigate the CLI to locate, view, and use commands that the CLI provides. The important concepts for using the CLI are:

  • The CLI modes (operational and configuration)
  • The hierarchy of the CLI commands
  • The commands for navigating the hierarchy
  • Industry-standard features that are built into the CLI

By understanding these concepts, the administrative user can configure and administer the gateway.

Prerequisites

Network knowledge background: This guide assumes these areas of proficiency for a system administrator or IT professional:

  • Working knowledge of IPv4, IPsec using IKEv1, AAA, NTP, SSH, Syslog, and other common networking protocols and concepts.
  • Basic understanding of how to configure a system that has ports, tunnels, interfaces, and so on.

SFP support: You can use any small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver on any port of the gateway but Blue Cedar only guarantees support for the Blue Cedar SFP module. To order the Blue Cedar SFP, contact Technical Support at success.bluecedar.com.
