2. Enter the numeric choice or satellite address corresponding to the satellite you've created your account on (ie - enter the number 1, 2, or 3).

3. Choose an access name, by default this should be left blank, so hit 'enter'

If you would like to choose your own access name, please be sure to only use lowercase letters. Including any uppercase letters will result in your access name not getting recognized when creating buckets.

4. Enter the Access token you generated on the request for API key:

Didn't save your Access token? Simply create another one in the satellite web interface.

5. Create and confirm an encryption passphrase. This is used to encrypt your files on your machine before they are uploaded to the network:

Please note that Storj Labs does not know or store your encryption passphrase, so if you lose it, you will not be able to recover your files.

6. Your Uplink is configured and ready to use!
