IT-Conductor Gateway Setup for Windows x64
This is the first setup process after subscribing to the IT-Conductor service, following successful email validation, and accepting the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA).
The IT-Conductor Gateway allows communication between the customer's site network and the IT-Conductor cloud platform. It must be connected successfully before any private customer systems can be monitored by IT-Conductor.

We recommend using the latest JRE supported by IT-Conductor by using the Install button.
- For 1st-time installations, the Install button will appear. Else, the Update button will show.
- Clicking Install will download the JRE from Oracle, so it may take a few minutes (depending on Internet connection speed).
- It is normal to see the status "IT-Conductor (Not Responding)" while this download and installation occurs.
Once the Installation of JRE is successful, the Java Home will be automatically updated.
