Install the Mirage Gateway server to secure your data center environment for users that communicate with the corporate enterprise data center via Internet.

About this task

Linux is case sensitive.


  • Ensure that you installed the following Mirage components:

    • Mirage server

    • Mirage Management server

    • Mirage Management console

  • Create a bind user to authenticate the communication request between the client and the Mirage servers.

  • Add your company's DNS server IP address to the top of the /etc/resolv.conf file. In the /etc/resolv.conf file, type nameserver IP address, where IP address is the IP address for the DNS server. You can use the Linux vim text editor, or WinSCP to use a Windows text editor. If you use WinSCP to edit the file, use the username root and the password vmware. If you cannot use your company's DNS server, then you must add a DNS record to the /etc/hosts file.


  1. In the ESX console, power on the VM.
  2. On the Console tab, press Enter.
  3. When prompted, provide the login credentials.

    The default username is mirage, and the default password is vmware.

  4. To start the installation, run the sudo /opt/MirageGateway/bin/ command.
  5. Follow the prompts to install the Mirage Gateway server.

    Use the configuration information that you gathered in the worksheet.
