LCE Server Installation

The following procedure must be performed as the root user:

  1. Download the LCE server package.

    Tip: After downloading the LCE server package, you can view information about the software the server is dependent on by using the following command:

    # rpm -qRp <LCE rpm>

    ...where <LCE rpm> is the path to and filename of the package you downloaded. For example, /tmp/lce-5.0.0-el6.x86_64.rpm.

  2. Confirm the integrity of the package by comparing the MD5 checksum with the one listed in the product release notes.

  3. Install the LCE server.
  4. Copy the activation code from the Tenable Community site, as described in the Tenable Community Guide.

  5. Using a web browser, navigate to the address or hostname of the LCE server on port 8836 (https://<ip or hostname>:8836).

    Tip: Ensure that the firewall on the system allows TCP traffic through port 8836, otherwise the web UI will be inaccessible. For example, iptables or firewalls may be blocking port 8836 by default. A full list of required ports is included in the Software Requirements.

  6. Complete the Quick Setup wizard.
  7. Add the LCE server to Tenable.sc.
