You can run the gateway in a Docker container or as a standalone Java application.

Note:

Stopping and starting a gateway instance does not cause any configuration issues, but the PingOne gateway will not function until the instance is started again.

You can also run an LDAP gateway as a standalone Windows service. For more information, see Running a standalone gateway as a Windows service.

Starting the gateway instance in a Docker container

Use the Docker command that you copied from PingOne to start a Docker container. Run the Docker container on a computer that can reach your LDAP directory or Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) client, and PingOne.

  1. Ensure that Docker is installed and that the Docker Engine is running.
  2. Locate the Docker command that you copied earlier.

    For more information, see Adding an LDAP gateway or Adding a RADIUS gateway.

  3. Review the end user license agreement at www.pingidentity.com/en/legal/subscription-agreement.html.
  4. If you agree to the terms of the license agreement, open a text editor and modify the command as follows.

    Change -e PING_IDENTITY_ACCEPT_EULA=no to -e PING_IDENTITY_ACCEPT_EULA=yes.

  5. At a command prompt, run the command.
