Security How To

Proxies, Extensions

The Configure Proxies step (Figure 9) is only necessary if you have a proxy server on your network (such as a Web proxy). We will again take the default settings and skip to the next section.

Now we should be at the "Install Enterprise Edition" screen (Figure 10). We will once again skip to the next section, as we are not interested in the "Enterprise" edition right now.

Once we are at the "Install other extensions" section, we need to check the PuTTY box (Figure 11). Feel free at this point to check any other extensions that might be helpful in supporting additional services that you might like to use with SSL Explorer. In the next section, we will install another custom extension not listed on the list called TightVNC.

The last section of the install is a Summary page (Figure 12), which displays the choices that we have selected for our install. If would like to change your mind about any of the previous setup options now would be a good time to go back and make changes. Once you are confident of your settings click the Finish button to apply the new settings.

Once the Install Complete screen (Figure 13) is displayed we can move on to creating user accounts, installing the TightVNC custom extension and setting up shortcuts to our network services.
