BlueCat Gateway

Complete steps on installing BlueCat Gateway can be found in the BlueCat Gateway Installation Guide on the BlueCat documentation portal.

Tip: As noted in the BlueCat Gateway Installation Guide, after installing Gateway, you must perform additional configuration in BlueCat Address Manager and on your system get it up and running:
  • Within BlueCat Address Manager, set up a UDF named BlueCatGateway.

  • Within BlueCat Address Manager, set up a User for Gateway to use when accessing Address Manager data.

  • Within the Gateway Docker container, map the Gateway logging folders to an external folder, then set needed access access permissions for the logging folder and the bluecat_gateway workflows folder.

For more details on these steps, see Additional Gateway setup in the the BlueCat Gateway Installation Guide.

For detailed prerequisites, technical specifications, limitations, and best practices for deploying BlueCat Gateway on a BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server (BDDS), see Gateway Service on DNS/DHCP Server in the BlueCat Address Manager Administration Guide.

The sections below describe additional configuration that you might need to perform depending on the structure and architecture of your network.
