Install Web Edition

Before you install Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition, review the configuration options described in the Introduction.

  • For the simplest configuration, you can install all services on a single system.
  • For a distributed configuration, you'll need to run the installer twice: once to configure the Web Edition server (running the Secure Shell Server and the Web Transfer Server), and again to install the User Manager on a system behind your firewall.

    Note: If you configure a distributed system, install the same version (and build) on all systems.
