Quick Setup

Before You Begin:

Tip: If you need to correct a value during the Quick Setup, you can click the Previous Step button.

To complete the quick setup:

  1. In a browser, navigate to the LCE interface for the server (https://<hostname or IP address>:8836).

    The sign-in page appears.

  2. In both the Username and Password boxes, type admin.

  3. Click the Sign In To Continue button.

    The Quick Setup Change Default Password dialog box appears.

  4. In the New Password and Confirm Password boxes, type a password that is a minimum of four alphanumeric characters.

    Note: Required password complexity can be configured later.

    Caution: Administrator accounts are locked after five attempts, and can only be reset by other administrators or by removing and recreating lce_users.db.
  5. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Proxy Configuration dialog box appears.

  6. (Optional) if a proxy is utilized in the environment where LCE is deployed, select Yes, and then enter the required information into the Proxy Address, Proxy Username, Proxy Password, and Confirm Proxy Password boxes.
  7. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Set Activation Code dialog box appears.

    Caution: If the LCE server instance you are trying to activate is not connected to the Internet, you will need to perform the Offline Activation procedure. Complete that procedure, then continue this procedure from step 9.

  8. In a separate browser, find your activation code on the Tenable Community site, as described in the Tenable Community Guide.

  9. In the LCE browser, in the Activation Code box, type the corresponding activation code from the Tenable Community site.

  10. Click the Apply button.
  11. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Port Configuration dialog box appears.

    The boxes are populated with the default ports for each type of communication.

  12. (Optional) modify the values, and then click the Apply button.

    Note: It is recommended that you use the default ports unless a conflict is identified.

  13. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Database Directory dialog box appears.

    By default, the Database Directory box is set to /opt/lce/db/. The Database Directory box specifies the location on the host where the LCE server will create and maintain silos.

  14. Confirm that the available space in the directory is sufficient for your LCE license.

  15. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Network Ranges dialog box appears.

  16. In the Monitored Network box, type the network range that LCE will monitor. The network range must be entered in either CIDR notation, or <IP>/<netmask> format. For example, 192.168.0.0/24 or 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0.
  17. In the Excluded Network box, type a network range that you do not want to be monitored by LCE. The network range must be entered in either CIDR notation, or <IP>/<netmask> format.

  18. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Tenable.io dialog box appears.

  19. (Optional) to send vulnerability reports to Tenable.io, select Yes, and then enter the required information into the Cloud Address, Cloud Port, Cloud Scanner Key, and Scanner Name boxes.

    When the LCE server is configured to send vulnerability reports to Tenable.io, the LCE server will query Tenable.io for jobs. The Job Queue Check Rate specifies the amount of time that will elapse between each query.

  20. In the Job Queue Check Rate Min and Sec boxes, specify the amount of time that you want to elapse between each query.

  21. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Complete dialog box appears.

  22. Click the Restart button.

    Quick Setup is completed, and the LCE server and services restart. When the restart is complete, you can sign in to the LCE interface to complete any additional configuration your organization requires, including syslog forwarding, load balancing configuration, and NAT setup for LCE clients, among other configuration items.
