Use the Installation Directory dialog (shown in Figure 3.4) to specify the location of the PEM server:
By default, the PEM server is installed in the /opt/PEM directory on Linux or in C:\Program Files\PEM on Windows. Accept the default location, or use the Installation Directory button to open a browser dialog and select the directory in which the PEM server will be installed.
Use the Show advanced options check box to instruct the installer to open the Advanced options dialog.
Use the Advanced options dialog when installing the Postgres database server and the PEM-HTTPD on different hosts, or if you wish the PEM server to reside on an existing Postgres server installation.

Provide the User name and Password of a database superuser. After supplying the requested information, click Next to continue to the Network Details dialog.
Use the Network Details dialog (see Figure 3.7) to specify the CIDR-style network address from which the PEM agents will connect to the server (the client-side address).

You may specify the address of a network host, or a network address range. For example, if you wish to monitor database servers with the addresses 192.168.10.23, 192.168.10.76 and 192.168.10.184, enter 192.168.10.0/24 to allow connections with hosts in that network.
The specified address will be added to the server's pg_hba.conf file. You can specify additional network addresses by manually adding entries to the pg_hba.conf file on the PostgreSQL server if required, using the initial entry as a template.
When you've added the Network address, click Next to continue to the Agent Details dialog.
