After [installation|CDP3:Installing Enterprise Edition on Linux], you need to configure the CDP Server. You can get examples of the input with:

{code}# r1soft-setup --help{code}

1. Define a _username_ and _password_ for the CDP Server Web Interface.

{code}# r1soft-setup --user DESIRED_USERNAME --pass DESIRED_PASSWORD{code}

After running you will see output similar to:

{code}# r1soft-setup --user admin --pass r1soft
Server username and password set
The R1Soft CDP Server must be restarted for these changes to take effect
Use '/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart' to restart.{code}


2. By default, the embedded web server required for the Web-based Interface will listen on TCP ports 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS). These ports are frequently in use by your Linux Server (e.g. by Apache). If you are already using ports 80 and 443, you will need to define different ports. 8080 (HTTP) and 8443 (HTTPS) are recommended alternatives to standard 80 and 443. You can chose any valid and unused TCP port that you like.

{code}# r1soft-setup --http-port 8080 --https-port 8443{code}

3. Start the Web Interface (CDP Server):

{code}/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart{code}

4. You may need to change firewall rules depending on where you are connecting to the Web Interface from.

5. You may need to configure heap memory. See [CDP3:Configuring Heap Memory].

6. You should now be able to connect to the CDP 3 Enterprise Edition Web Interface using Firefox or Internet Explorer. See [Accessing Enterprise Edition Web Interface].
{info:title=Note}You do not need to install the kernel module on the Server.
