Connecting the Web Client

  1. Open a JavaScript-enabled Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

  2. Type http://<host_name>:<port_number> in the address bar and press Enter. Here, <host_name> is the name of the machine in which OpManager is running and <port_number> is the port that you have chosen to run OpManager Web Server during installation.

    [Note: If you have enabled SSL, connect as https://<host_name>:<port_number> in the address bar and press Enter.]

  3. Type the User Name and Password and click Login. The default user name and password are 'admin' and 'admin' respectively.

  4. If the client is not accessible, check if the port is not blocked by Windows Firewall. 

Alternatively, if the OpManager server is running on Windows machines, you can start the Web client using
