You need to download and install Nexus Open Source to proxy and host Maven repositories.
To download and install Sonatype Nexus Open Source, follow the instructions in Section 2.1.1, "Downloading Nexus Open Source", and Section 2.2.2, "Installing Nexus Open Source", from "Repository Management with Nexus".
If you've installed Nexus on the default port 8081 listening on localhost, going to http://localhost:8081/nexus/ will load the interface shown in Figure 10.3, “Crowd Menu Link under the Security Section of the Nexus Menu”.
Clicking on the Log In link in the upper right-hand corner of the window, will prompt you for a username and password in the Nexus Log In dialogin shown in Figure 10.2, “The Nexus Log In Dialog”. The default administrative username is "admin" and the default administrative password is "admin123".
Once you have successfully authenticated as an administrative user, you will see the full Nexus user interface as shown in Figure 10.3, “Crowd Menu Link under the Security Section of the Nexus Menu”.
