The following steps will walk you through the process of a FileCap server installation from ISO image. This process is identical for VMware, Hyper-V and hardware.
It is highly recommended to have the required firewall rules as the installer will try to download the latest security patches.
Note for Virtual Environments: When you create a Virtual Machine in VMware or Hyper-V, there can be a question to select the Host OS, you need to select “Debian 64-bit”.
FileCap OS installation
After selecting the keymap, the installer will preform a basic system setup, followed by the network auto configuration via DHCP.
In most networks this auto configuration will fail because there is no DHCP server in the DMZ. In this case the installer will display the following message:
In the fields after this enter the IP address, network mask, default gateway and name server.
The system will then ask for the console password. Please note that this password is only the console password, and not the admin password to configure FileCap via the web interface.
After setting up the networking and password, the installation detects the hard disk size and automatically chooses partitions sizes depending on the disk size.
The installation will now setup the disk and install the OS and all needed packages.
After the installation, the FileCap server will automatically reboot.
Continue to the FileCap administration portal to configure FileCap.
