How to log in through the Vyatta NOS web GUI.
For security reasons, we strongly recommend that:
- You should discourage use of the root account
- Each user who will access the system from a web browser should have their own individual user account
- At the address bar of your web browser, enter the IP address that you defined for the Ethernet interface.Note: For security reasons, all communication with the web GUI is over HTTPS. And Vyatta NOS includes a Ciena self-signed certificate. So, you may see a warning when you first connect through your web browser, to the effect that the certificate is not trusted. As this certificate is generated on Vyatta NOS specifically for browser access, you can safely ignore this warning. You can let your browser store the certificate for future sessions.The login page opens in your browser.
