How To Instantiate Re6st Access Token

This document explains how to instantiate Re6st Access Tokens which are used to connect new nodes to network maintained by the Re6st Registry of a SlapOS Master.

To follow the steps outlined in this section, you need to have:

Configuring Re6st Access Token

The process of installing (supplying) a software and providing it as a service (instantiation) are the same for all softwares and is described in configuring a SlapoS slave node. However during instantiation each instance can be configured differently.

However, each instance can be configured differently. This section will cover the specific configuration parameters used for a Re6st Access Token, which has to be provided during installation of Re6st on a node to associate it with a Registry and SlapOS Master.

Token Configuration

SlapOS Interface - Re6st Token Configuration

After adding a new serivce, selecting Re6st and the latest version, you will reach the configuration screen. Set Software Type to Re6st Token. As mentioned, the token is actually a slave instance of the Registry (and in case of COMP-0 a first gateway node).

Select the Computer on which the Registry of your SlapOS Master was installed at the bottom of the page, then click Proceed to instantiate the service and be forwarded to the list of current services. Refresh the page, it may take a few minute for the node to be instantiated and the token to appear. It is a single use token to connect one other node to the network.

Once the token is instantiantiated, click on it to open it's configuration and connection parameters.

Token Connection Parameters

Locate the token in the Connection Parameters. It might require a few minutes to show up.

With the Registry token, you can now install Re6st on a fresh node.

If you are installing COMP-1,2,3..., head back to the terminal and follow the steps on how to add Re6st IPv6 to a node before continuing to retrieve a SlapOS Master token.

If you are installing COMP-0, you can now also install Re6st on this machine. It will add back actual IPv6 after you have removed the temporary IPv6 previously.
