Install the encryption proxy on Windows

You can install an Edge Encryption proxy on a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows computer.

Procedure

  1. Create the installation directory.
  2. Download the Edge Encryption proxy archive file to the installation directory.
  3. Start the Windows cmd terminal program with administrator privileges.
  4. Change to the installation directory.
  5. Run the following command:
    java -jar edgeencryption-dist-<version>-windows-x86-64.zip -m install -n <ProxyName> -h <host> -p <port> -proto https
    Option Description
    version The version number of the Edge Encryption release.
    ProxyName The name of the encryption proxy instance.
    host Your instance.
    port The port of your instance. When the protocol is https, the port is normally 443.

    If you want to see the help screen, execute this command without arguments: java -jar edgeencryption-dist-<version>-windows-x86-64.zip

  6. Optionally change the name of the service.
