You can download the latest version of the kcn on Download page.

Linux Archive Distribution

The archive file consists of the executable binary and the configuration file structured as follows.
Note: Do NOT alter the file structure or file name. If you change it, the node may not function correctly.
- bin
|- kcn
|- kcnd
- conf
|- kcnd.conf
File Name
File Description
CN executable file
CN start/termination script file
CN configuration file


The installation is the uncompression of the downloaded package where you want to install the package.
$ tar zxf kcn-vX.X.X-linux-amd64.tar.gz
$ tar zxf kcn-baobab-vX.X.X-linux-amd64.tar.gz
Note: it is recommended that the uncompressed directory kcn-linux-amd64/bin path should be added to the environment variable $PATH to run the kcn and kcnd globally. As an example,
$ export PATH=$PATH:~/downloaded/path/kcn-linux-amd64/bin
The other sections assume that the path is added to the variable.

$ yum install kcnd-vX.X.X.el7.x86_64.rpm
