In this step, you will set up the most essential configuration which will bring your IPFire system on to the network.
First pick your keyboard layout and the timezone you are in.
In the next two diaglogs you will need to enter the hostname and domainname of your new IPFire installation.
On the two following screens, you will have to provide passwords for the
admin users. The
admin password is required to access the web user interface and the
root account is used for command line login only.
You won't see any characters displayed when typing the password.
Please pick a strong password as the security of the IPFire system depends on it!
After that, you have finished the initial setup and the system will boot up. Go on with Step 5: Network Setup.
