Interface for Administration of Carbonio Mesh

Interface for Administration of Carbonio Mesh

Since everything is controlled by Carbonio Mesh, access to the administrative interface is typically not necessary. You must first establish a new token before setting up an SSH tunnel from the present workstation to the Carbonio server in order to access the administrative interface, for example to look at the configuration created by Carbonio.

The last step is necessary since Carbonio Mesh only listens on localhost.for security reasons.


You will require the cluster credential password that was established during the Carbonio Mesh installation in order to properly accomplish the two actions that are outlined below.

Step 2. Create Token

You need to create a bootstrap token that will be used to create any additional token.

# service-discover bootstrap-token

You need to provide the cluster credential password that you used in the previous step.


The bootstrap token is the most important building block of Carbonio Mesh and should only be used to create other tokens: if lost, all tokens must be regenerated, so keep it safe!

Step 3. Create tunnel

# ssh -N -f -L 8500:localhost:8500 root@<IP Address>
