Follow the instructions below to install Recon on a RedHat or CentOS host using Yum.
If you're prefer to download the recon installer and perform a local install, check out the RPM Install instructions.
To install Recon, open a command shell and run the following commands:
$ sudo wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/recon.repo https://dl.recon-networks.com/recon.repo
$ sudo yum clean all
$ sudo yum update
$ sudo yum groupinstall Recon
The newly installed Network Monitor services will be started as part of the setup process.
To load the GUI, enter the URL below (with the IP address of the Recon server) into a Google Chrome or Firefox browser.
https://Server IP Address/recon
When you first access Recon, your browser will alert you that the connection is not secure. This is due to the fact that Recon ships with a default, self-signed, SSL certificate.
It is not possible for us to provide users with a valid SSL certificate for systems they host themselves. Rather than provide a system with no effort made to encrypt its network traffic, we felt it was better to provide you with a self-signed certificate (and the resulting browser warning) and allow you to replace it with your own valid certificate if you choose to do so.
If you would like to update Recon to use your own certificate, you can do so by following the instructions found here . Otherwise, you may proceed past your browser’s warning and continue to use Recon.
