Apple (OSX and macOS): Install and configure an Airwall Agent

If you've received an email or activation code, see Link my Airwall Agent or Server to an Airwall secure network. If you need to install and configure manually, follow these instructions. You must be an administrator of the computer to install and configure the Airwall Agent.

Note: Download the macOS/OSX installation files from the Tempered Software Downloads and Release Notes.
Important: In v2.2 and earlier, you may be required to install a TAP device driver. In earlier versions, the TAP driver's certificate may display a developer other than Tempered. If this occurs, you can safely click Allow and continue with your installation.

Once the installation is complete, the application starts automatically.

To install and configure manually:
  1. To install the Airwall Agent locate the files you downloaded, double-click on them to to run the installer, and follow the prompts.
  2. Left-click the Tempered icon in the macOS menu bar
  3. Select Configure.
  4. On the Airwall Configuration page, do the following:
    1. Select the plus (+) to add a new profile.
    2. Under Conductor, enter the IP address or host name of your Conductor.
    3. Under Port, use the default port setting of 8096, unless your Airwall secure network administrator has told you to use a different port.
    4. If you have an Activation code, under Invitation, enter the code. If you don't have a code, copy down or screenshot your Device ID and send to your administrator to activate your account.
      Note: Device ID, Overlay Device IP and Overlay Netmask are read-only and configurable from the Conductor.
    5. Select Save.

If you've used an Airwall Invitation or Activation code, once the Airwall Agent is recognized by the Conductor, you should be able to start connecting to protected resources. If you are connecting manually, send your Device ID to your administrator so they can activate your account.

Note: You may need to stop and restart the Airwall Agent to allow it to connect to the Conductor. Left-click the Tempered icon in the menu bar and select Stop Airwall to disconnect or Start Airwall to connect.
