Server Component

1. Download from DOWNLOADS section to a directory on the Linux machine, such as ~/Downloads/JexusManager

2. Extract and copy the contents to Jexus installation folder, such as /usr/jexus,
      unzip -o ~/Downloads/JexusManager/
      sudo cp ~/Downloads/JexusManager/* /usr/jexus

3. Launch Jexus Manager server side, such as
      sudo mono RemoteServicesHost.exe jexus

Note that HTTPS is required, and is the base service address the client should connect to. The login user name is "jexus", and its password is "".

You can use other service address, user name, or password. Simply pass them in as parameters in the above order.

If you omit user name and password, the default user name is "jexus" and its password is "". If you even omit service address, https://localhost:8088 is going to be used, which only supports local administration and does not allow remote management.

4. Configure firewall to allow TCP access to the port 8088 (or the port you choose).
