Quick Setup

Before You Begin

You must first complete the LCE server installation.

Tip: At any point during the Quick Setup that you need to correct a value that you entered previously, you can click the Previous Step button.

Steps

  1. In a web 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, and then click the Sign In To Continue button.

    The Quick Setup Change Default Password dialog box appears.

  3. 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.

  4. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Proxy Configuration dialog box appears.

  5. 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. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.

  6. 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.

  7. In a separate browser window or tab, navigate and sign in to the Tenable Support Portal, and then, in the Main Menu box, click the Activation Codes link.

    The Your Registered Products page appears, displaying the activation codes for your products.

  8. In the LCE browser window or tab, in the Activation Code box, type the corresponding activation code from the Your Registered Products page, and then click the Apply button.

  9. 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.

  10. If necessary, modify the values, and then click the Apply button. This step is optional, and it is recommended that you use the default ports unless a conflict is identified.
  11. 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.

  12. If necessary, in the Database Directory box, modify the directory. This step is optional, and it is recommended that you use the default directory.

  13. Confirm that the available space in the directory is sufficient for your LCE license, and then click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Network Ranges dialog box appears.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Nessus Cloud dialog box appears.

  17. If you want LCE to send vulnerability reports to Nessus Cloud, select Yes, and then enter the required information into the Cloud Address, Cloud Port, Cloud Scanner Key, and LCE Scanner Name boxes.

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

  18. In the Job Queue Check Rate Min and Sec boxes, specify the amount of time that you want to elapse between each query.
  19. Click the Next Step button.

    The Quick Setup Complete dialog box appears.

  20. 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.
