Getting Started Overview

The following pages will walk you through the initial steps in setting up and using the Tehama platform.

Let's get started.

There are four parts to getting started with Tehama.

For more in depth discussions of each facet of Tehama, please see the USER GUIDES.

NOTE: Remember that the Tehama Team is available for any questions or concerns encountered during (and anytime after) Tehama Installation.

1. Full instructions on downloading and installing Google Authenticator can be found by visiting:
BlackBerry OS devices: Google Authenticator for BBOS 4 – BBOS 7 devices are also available.

2. A host for the Tehama Gateway is optional. The connected to organization may opt to limit access to applications and services in the cloud, which does not require the installation of a Tehama Gateway, by setting the Room's 'Network Access' to 'Internet Only'.

3. The Tehama Gateway does not require a dedicated host. You can run the Gateway on an existing host in your infrastructure as long as it can be configured as required, instead of setting up a host specifically for the purpose (which may require an additional OS license).
