Step 6: Configure the Data Defender Streams

  1. In a web browser, access your DDX Web User Interface by entering the following address in the address bar: localhost:8080. Then, press Enter. As a reminder, you must forward port 80 of your Amazon EC2 instance through your SSH session to your localhost port 8080 to access the Data Defender web UI.

  2. On the DataDefender dashboard, choose Go to Details.

  3. In the Streams section, choose + Add Stream.

  4. In the WAN Transport page of the Stream Wizard, enter and choose the following details. Then, choose Next.

    1. For Stream Name, enter Downlink.

    2. For Stream Direction, choose WAN to LAN.

    3. For Network Interface, choose eth1.

    4. For Port, enter 55888.

  5. In the Local Endpoint page of the Stream Wizard, enter and choose the following stream details. Then, choose Next.

    1. For Network Interface, choose lo.

    2. For Local Consumer, enter 127.0.0.1.

    3. For Port, enter 50000.

  6. In the Finish page of the Stream Wizard, choose Finish to save the stream configuration.

  7. Open the Data Defender menu by choosing the menu icon in the top left corner of the Stream Details page. Then, choose Configuration Manager.

    Note

    The previous steps describe how to configure a single downlink stream. Depending on your use case, you may need to configure multiple downlink streams. You can repeat the previous steps in order to create additional downlink streams if needed. Creating an uplink stream is out of the scope of this guide.

  8. For Configuration Name, enter default. Then, choose Save. The saved configuration will persist across Amazon EC2 instance restarts.
