When deploying the Content Gateway using the relay-endpoint model, you must install two instances of the Content Gateway on separate servers. Out of the two instances where one instance is installed on the relay server, the other instance must be installed on the endpoint server.


  1. Create a dedicated install directory for the Content Gateway installer on the server (For example, /tmp/ContentInstall/).
  2. Copy the .tar file to the dedicated install directory using a file transfer software.

    Examples of file transfer software include FileZilla or WinSCP.

  3. On the Linux box, navigate to the folder you copied the file to.

  4. Locate ContentGateway.bin, and make it an executable file:

      Sudo chmod +x ContentGateway.bin

  5. Begin installation:

    $ sudo ./ContentGateway.bin
  6. Press Enter until you receive a prompt to accept the licensing agreement. Press Y to accept.
  7. Select the Installation Type:

    1. If you want to retrieve the Gateway instance configuration from an API server, select Provide API Server Information.

    2. If you have downloaded the Gateway instance configuration as XML file from AirWatch Console, select Import Config.xml file.

  8. Verify your feature selection. Press Enter to continue.
  9. If you select Provide API Server Information:

    1. Enter API URL and press Y to accept.

    2. Enter ContentGateway GUID and press Y to accept.

    3. Enter and confirm the Content Gateway password.

  10. If you select Import Config.xml file:

    1. Enter the config.xml file path and press Enter.

    2. Review the Product Name and Program Features and press Enter.

    3. Enter Content Gateway Certificate Password.
  1. Enter Endpoint as the configuration type for Content Gateway Setup.

  1. Select the SSL Offloading setting that matches your configuration:
    • Enter Y if the SSL connection ends before reaching this server.
    • Enter N if the SSL connection does not end before reaching this server.
  2. Verify the firewall ports match your server. To grant the installer firewall permissions that are needed, enter Y.
  3. Review the summary information and verify its accuracy.

  4. Press Enter to begin the installation.

    Any errors during installation are displayed as error messages with details. The errors are recorded in the installation log file, which saves in the same directory in which you installed the Content Gateway. For information about troubleshooting the errors, see Content Gateway Troubleshooting.

  5. Close the installer and verify connectivity to AirWatch. For information about testing the Content Gateway's connectivity, see Verify Content Gateway Connectivity
