Log in and Configure the Conductor

The first step in setting up a Conductor is to log in and configure it.

Before you begin

Before you begin, you will need the following:
  • The IP or hostname of a cloud or virtual Conductor. Follow the link in your order email, or go to the public IP you set up when creating your Conductor.
  • Your Conductor license voucher code.

Set up a v2.2.10 or later Conductor

When you first set up a Conductor, it walks you through the initial configuration steps, then licensing and provisioning. For descriptions of the settings, see Conductor Configuration Wizard Settings.
  1. If you have a physical Conductor, apply power to it, and connect a computer to Port 1 on the Conductor hardware using an Ethernet cable. Refer to your unit's Platform Guide for specific instructions.
  2. In a web browser:
    • Physical Conductor – Go to: https://192.168.56.2
    • Cloud Conductor – Follow the link in your order email, or go to the public IP you set up when creating your Conductor.
    • Virtual Conductor – Go to https://192.168.56.2, or the IP address for Network adapter 1 or 2 that you set up when deploying your virtual Conductor.
    Note: Depending on your browser, you may have to bypass the Your connection is not private warning to access your Conductor.
  3. Enter the default username (admin) and the password from your Tempered Order Delivery email, from your cloud provider (Tnw-<instance ID>, or the default password (admin123), and select Sign in.
  4. Change your password when prompted, and select Update.
  5. You're now in the Conductor Configuration Wizard. Follow the wizard to configure essential settings on your Conductor, and then license and provision it.

After provisioning is complete, accept the new Conductor certificate. Now you can Add Airwall Edge Service Licenses to the Conductor.

Note: When you start up your Conductor, you'll have to proceed past the security warning (for example, in Firefox, click Advanced and then Accept risk). To avoid this warning, you can replace the Conductor-signed certificate with a custom certificate. See Install a Custom CA Certificate Chain.

2.2.8 and earlier Conductor

With 2.2.8 and earlier, you need to License and Provision a Conductor (v2.2.8 and earlier) first, then configure it.
  1. In a browser window, enter the URL for your Conductor.
  2. Enter the default username (admin) and the password from your Tempered Order Delivery email, from your cloud provider (usually Tnw-<instance ID>), or the default password (admin123), and select Sign in.
  3. Change your password when prompted.
  4. Select Update.
  5. On the System Configuration dialog, you can leave all the fields as they are and select Configure. For recommended configuration, see Best Practices for Conductor Configuration.
  6. Once configuration is finished, select Return to settings.
You should see the Conductor Settings page. You are now ready to connect Airwall Edge Services and devices, and create overlays.
