Install an Access Tier

This section installs and configures the Banyan Access Tier in your environment.

  • Updated on Dec 15, 2022

This article describes features that are only available in the Banyan Business edition and Banyan Enterprise edition.

Note: Netagent v2 has been released, simplifying the process of installing and configuring an Access Tier:
1. Use an API key with the access_tier scope for registration
2. All agent configuration is done via the Command Center API and UI

If you need to install Netagent v1, use the legacy v1 guides.

Overview

The Banyan Access Tier is an identity-aware proxy that mediates access between entities on the internet and your internal services. Each Banyan Access Tier has a public IP address that is reachable from the internet, and each accepts inbound connections on the following ports:

  • TCP 80 and TCP 443 (Hosted Web Services),
  • TCP 8443 (Infrastructure Services),
  • and UDP 51820 (Service Tunnels).

The core of Banyan’s Access Tier component is the netagent binary - a light-weight, identity-aware proxy, written in Golang. Netagent runs on Linux servers and is designed to be similar in deployment to open-source proxies such as Nginx.
