Installing the agent

Download the appropriate agent to your device. Install it according to the manual provided with your package. Here we show you two ways how to copy and install the Raspbian qbee package on a Raspberry Pi:

  1. Use wget (please check in your qbee package tab if the version from the link below is the latest):

        wget https://cdn.qbee.io/software/qbee-agent/qbee-agent_1.2.1_armhf.deb
    
  2. Use scp to get the package onto the device:

        scp <path_to_package> <username>@<ip_address>:/tmp
    

Then you can ssh into the device and install the qbee agent package:

    sudo dpkg -i /tmp/<package>

After successful installation the agent will output a command that explains how to bootstrap it to qbee. This will look like:

    sudo /opt/qbee/bootstrap/bootstrap.sh -k <bootstrap_key>
The next chapter will explain how to obtain the bootstrap key.
