NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     gateway - Internet	Gateway	administration tool

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Internet Gateway is a web-based tool for administration of	network
     services, designed	for users with little prior knowledge of the IRIX
     environment.  In addition to allowing you to easily connect your server
     or	desktop	machine	to the Internet, it provides a variety of simple
     remote administration tools.

   Accessing Internet Gateway    [Toc]    [Back]
     The Internet Gateway web pages are	served using a Netscape	web server on
     your server or desktop machine. This allows for simple remote
     administration of network services	from any UNIX, PC or Macintosh client.

     To	access Internet	Gateway	on your	system,	enter the following two

	/etc/chkconfig webface on
	/etc/init.d/webface start

     then point	your web browser at the	URL:


     replacing <yourhostname> with the hostname	of your	machine.  For security
     reasons you will be asked to enter	the root password of your machine,
     then asked	to provide an administration password.	You will then see a
     screen with icons leading to the three sections of	Internet Gateway:
     Setup Tasks, Administration and Applications.  All	three sections include
     detailed online help.

   Setup Tasks    [Toc]    [Back]

     requiring a number	of steps. These	are:

     Dynamic Host Configuration	Protocol Setup
	Allows you to quickly set up your SGI machine to act as	an IP address
	server,	automatically adding client machines to	your network as

     Security Setup
	Provides a simple mechanism for	reducing security risks	posed by some
	default	networking behaviors on	your SGI machine.  Allows easy
