3. Management Console

The MetaDefender Kiosk Management Console (mgmt console) allows you to manage the MetaDefender Kiosk system through a web browser.
The mgmt console can be accessed through any browser at http://<MetaDefender Kiosk System>:8009/management.
After an initial, fresh installation, a configuration wizard is displayed to setup the Management Console.

A user must log in to access the mgmt console.
The username is case-sensitive.
A maximum of 5 unsuccessful login attempts are allowed until the mgmt console disallows any further logins for 30 minutes.
Once logged in, if no activity is made for some time, the idle user will be automatically logged out.
