4.1 Log in to the Administrative Server

You can log in to the Administrative Server (which opens the MSS Administrative Console) from the Windows Start menu or from a URL on any computer with a web browser.

  1. First, be sure the servlet runner is started. (The servlet runner is automatically started by the MSS installer.)

  2. Open the Administrative Server login page either from the Windows Start menu or from the URL:

    • Start > All Programs > Host Access Management and Security Server > Administrative Server

    • http://<hostname>[:port]/adminconsole/

      Note: If the port number is 80 (the default for HTTP), it is not needed in the URL. For example, http://myserver.mycompany.com/adminconsole/

    This login directly opens the MSS Administrative Console.

  3. In the User field, enter either admin (the default) or your site-specific user name.

  4. Enter the administrator password specified during installation and configuration.

    Note: The default password is admin. We recommend that you change this password as soon as possible. In the MSS Administrative Console, go to the Configure Settings - General Settings panel.

  5. Click Login. The MSS Administrative Console opens to the Manage Sessions panel.

    NOTE:If you connect using HTTPS and your server has a self-signed certificate, your browser will warn you about the certificate you created. This is expected behavior. When the warning message is displayed, accept the self-signed certificate to proceed, and the product's administrator login page will open. These warning messages will not appear after you purchase a CA-signed certificate or if you import the self-signed certificate into your browser certificate store.

  6. To see the list of sessions, open Manage Sessions.

    NOTE:Links to Reflection for the Web sessions require Reflection for the Web version 13.2 or higher to directly launch the session.

  7. Continue with Configure the Administrative Server.
