Next steps

Build a network

Visit the building your first connection section of our getting started guide to learn how to control Enclave.

Find your IP address

Run enclave status at the command line to find the Virtual Address of your newly installed system.

Test connectivity

Pings are a great start, but don't forget to check the local Windows firewall configuration to ensure ICMP traffic is permitted.

Starting and stopping Enclave

The installer creates a lightweight supervisor service set to run at system start which is responsible for starting the Enclave fabric. The supervisor service exists to start, stop and restart Enclave fabric in the background as daemon child processes.

The supervisor service responds to the Enclave CLI verbs start and stop to control the Fabric.

Updating Enclave

Uninstalling Enclave

TODO apt-get remove and apt-get purge

Note: Enclave does not backup a system's private keys. Lost or deleted private keys are not recoverable. If a system's configuration and private keys are lost, to use that system with Enclave again it must be re-enrolled.
