1 Configure Tentacle including security options

How to configure both agents and Tentacle server for secure communication, using a Tentacle proxy.

First, we recommend carrying out manual tests from the terminals to to ensure that the configuration, parameters and certificates are correct.

1.1 Manual testing

1. Manually boot the tentacle_server:

sudo -u user tentacle_server -x password -e tentaclecert.pem -k tentaclekey.pem -f cacert.pem -s /tmp -v

2. Manually boot the proxy (only follow this step if you are using a Tentacle proxy): sudo -u user tentacle_server -b ip_server -g 41124

3. Manually launch tentacle_client:

sudo -u user tentacle_client -a ip_proxy/ip_server -x password -e tentaclecert.pem -k tentaclekey.pem -v /bin/ls (or any file)
