In order to connect to the GUI using a web browser, an interface must be configured to allow administrative access over HTTPS or over both HTTPS and HTTP. By default, an interface has already been set up that allows HTTPS access with the IP address 192.168.1.99.
Browse to https://192.168.1.99 and enter your username and password. If you have not changed the admin account’s password, use the default user name,
admin, and leave the password field blank.
The GUI will now display in your browser, and you will be required to provide a password for the administrator account.
- Go to Network > Interfaces and edit the interface you wish to use for access. Take note of its assigned IP address.
- In Administrative Access, select HTTPS, and any other protocol you require. You can also select HTTP, although this is not recommended as the connection will be less secure.
- Click OK.
- Browse to the IP address using your chosen protocol.
The GUI will now be displayed in your browser.
