3.1.1. Web Management Console

After installation and completion of the basic configuration wizard, the Web Management Console is available at:

http://<server name or IP>:<port>/ 

where <server name or IP> is the fully qualified domain name or IP address; and <port> is the port number of the system where the REST service is bound. Both the IP address and the port number may be customized during the installation.

Administrator account

After installing the product and completing the basic configuration wizard, the administrator account –created in the basic configuration wizard– is available for login .

As long as TLS is not configured for the Web Management Console, passwords are sent clear-text over the network. For details see Transport Layer Security.

Every change made in the product's configuration via the Web Management Console is applied when you select SAVE SETTINGS or OK, except if the change cannot be applied.

If not configured otherwise, the Central Management REST service is listening on port 8018.


Transport Layer Security

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a cryptographic protocol that provides communications security over a computer network. Websites, like the Web Management Console, are able to use TLS to secure all communications between their servers and web browsers.

The TLS protocol aims primarily to provide confidentiality (privacy) and data integrity between two communicating computer applications.

For instructions to set up TLS see 3.5. Configuring TLS.
