    1. In the browser, click Advanced > Add exception > Confirm Security Exception
    2. Until next time, replace the self-generated certificate with a proper one.
  3. In the Administration interface, click Log on.
  4. The Setup System Wizard starts. Choose the built-in demo license or upload a proper license received from Nexus.
  5. In Setup Access Gateway, set the root username and password for the administration interface.
    username: agadmin, different password


    Store this information in a secure place.

You can later update the settings made during the wizard.
