This HOWTO is written as a general guide on how to use BSSUP access tool on SERVERware 3.
 
 
There is also a short video tutorial:

=BSSUP panel=

To access BSSUP panel, click on the button next to the System Date in the top left SERVERware menu. BSSUP main panel should appear on the right side of the SERVERware web interface. To close it, simply click again on the BSSUP button.
 
 
BSSUP panel has a clean and simple design with several buttons:
 
 
* '''Open SSH access''' button, for opening SSH access to your server
 
 
* '''Advanced options''' button, to modify SSH port or to set Timeout
 
 
* '''Show logs''' button, to access logs.
 
 
Status bar is at the bottom of the panel, which is showing whether SSH access is open or closed.

When SSH access is opened, icon in the status bar changes color into green with the check mark inside together with the SSH access status, indicating that everything is up and running on port 22. Also, BSSUP panel button changes color into orange while the SSH access is opened.
 
 
Next to the status information in the status bar, there is also an info when the SSH access will be closed.
 
 
During this state it's not possible to access Advanced options.
 
 
=Advanced Options=

'''Port''' section is used to define which port will be used for SSH access. If you enter text, or invalid port value, text field should be red and button for opening SSH access should be disabled.
 
           
 
Timeout dropdown menu is to choose for how long SSH access will be opened.
 
 
For example, if you enter 22 for port, select '''No timeout''' and open SSH access, everything should be the same except the status bar. The message will show that the port is permanently open, and there should be no timeout.

=SSH access list=
 
 
Open three separate terminals and in each one execute command:
 
  ssh root@IP_ADDRESS_OF_CONTROLLER -p22
 
 
After that, you should see something like this:
 
 
[[File:05-bssup-connection-list.png|frame|center]]
 
 
* In the column '''IP Address''' you should see all IP addresses of computers from which you made SSH connection request
 
* The column '''Port'''  shows all used ports of your connections
 
* The column '''Start Time''' indicates when each connection has started
 
 
At the end of the each connection status there are buttons for stopping single SSH session. When you click on one of the buttons, that row should disappear from the table and on your terminal you should get output:
 
 
  Connection to 10.1.50.10 closed by remote host.
 
 
Click on Close SSH access

After clicking on Close SSH access:
 
 
* All sessions should terminate. Check in your terminal if all connections are closed
 
* BSSUP panel button at the top should be gray
 
* '''Advanced options''' button should be enabled again
 
* '''Port''' and '''Timeout''' fields should be enabled again
 
* Message in the status bar should show that the SSH access is closed
 
 
=Logs=
 
 
Click on Show logs
 
 
[[File:07-bssup-log.png|frame|center]]
 
 
After clicking on '''Show logs''' button, BSSUP panel should expand with additional information regarding SSH access history, where you can find date and time, severity and detailed explanation of each SSH connection:
 
 
* '''Date/Time''' column shows exact date and time when something happened
 
* '''Severity''' column shows the status of the messages. Severity marked as “WARN” should have yellow background
 
* '''Message''' column shows detailed explanation regarding each log
 
 
At the bottom of the log list there is a page selector, together with the Previous and the Next buttons.
 
 
Above the log there is a dropdown menu to choose for which period of time the logs should be displayed, '''All logs''' or for the '''Last 7 days'''.
