Deploy a Conductor on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

You can deploy an Airwall Conductor on GCP to manage physical, virtual, and cloud Airwall Edge Services, and Airwall Agents. Use the following steps to deploy a Conductor using the GCP marketplace. Alternatively, see Manually deploy a Conductor on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) if you require a special configuration.

  • A Google Cloud account with billing information set up. If you do not have an account, you can create a free Google Cloud account and upgrade it to a full account later.
  • A Google Cloud project. Use an existing project, or see Create and configure a project.
  • A Conductor license voucher to start the Conductor and verify it is set up correctly. Fulfillment provide this to you in an email once your purchase is complete.
  1. Log on to Google Cloud Platform and click into your project.
  2. Navigate to the External IP addresses page. Click Reserve External Address.
  3. Specify the Name and selct the Region where your instance will be deployed. Click Reserve.

  4. Navigate to the Tempered Airwall Conductor marketplace page. Alternatively, enter Tempered Airwall Conductor in the search bar.

  5. Click Launch. Sign in with your Google Cloud provider account details.
  6. Specify the Deployment name. Select Zone, Machine type, Data disk type, and Data disk size.

  7. Select Network and Subnetwork for your network interface. From the dropdown menu, select the External IP address that you created in step 3.

  8. Specify the Source IP ranges for TCP port 8096 and HTTPS traffic. Click Deploy.

Verify, Configure, Provision, and License a Cloud Conductor

At this point the Conductor instance is running in your cloud provider.
To verify, paste your Conductor IP into a browser window. It should show you the Initial Conductor Configuration page. To log in, configure, and license your Conductor, see Log in and Configure the Conductor.
Note: In v2.2.8 and earlier, it shows the Provisioning page. See License and Provision a Conductor (v2.2.8 and earlier).

It may take several minutes for the Conductor to become available after it starts, so if you attempt to access it and your browser appears to stop responding, please try again in a few minutes.

Here are the default passwords for cloud Conductors. You are prompted to change the password as soon as you log in:
  • Alibaba Cloud – Tnw-<instanceID>
  • Amazon Web Services – Tnw-<instanceID>
  • Microsoft Azure – Tnw-<privateIpOfPublicNic>
  • Google Cloud – Tnw-<instanceID>
Note: In Microsoft Azure, if you do not see a password on the Azure Outputs page next to conductorPassword, it is likely you are not using the Managed image.
Note: When running the Conductor for the first time, you may receive notifications indicating the connection is not private. Once you have finished configuring the Conductor, you can install a custom certificate on the Conductor that prevents these notifications in the future.
