Microsoft Windows or Windows Server: Install and configure an Airwall Agent or Server

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 can get the Airwall Agent or Server for Windows from the administrator of your Airwall secure network, or download the latest installation files from Latest firmware and software. Once installed, you configure a profile on the Airwall Agent or Server to link to the Airwall secure network.

Note: You can start and stop the Airwall Agent or Server service as needed. Keep in mind when an Airwall Agent or Server service is stopped, you won't be able to connect to anything on the protected network.
To install and configure the Windows Airwall Agent or Server:
  1. Log into your Windows computer as an administrator.
  2. Download and install the Windows Airwall Agent or Server from Latest firmware and software.
    Note: If you are asked to install the TAP-Windows Provider as part of the installation procedure, click Install when prompted.
  3. Once the installation is complete, the Airwall Agent or Server starts automatically.
  4. Right-click the Tempered icon in the Windows System Tray
  5. Select Configure
  6. In the Configure window, do the following:
    1. Enter the IP address or host name of your Conductor. The default port setting is 8096. If you have an activation code, enter it here.
      Note: The Device ID, Overlay Device IP, and Overlay Netmask fields are read-only and configurable from the Conductor.
    2. Click OK.

If you've used an Airwall Invitation or Activation code, once the Airwall Agent or Server 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.
