Learn how to install, configure and operate the Vyatta NOS, which helps drive our virtual networking & physical platforms portfolio.

Logging in to the web GUI

For security purposes, all communication to the web GUI is over HTTPS, the secure version of HTTP, using a self-signed certificate. As with any self-signed certificate, when you initially connect with a web browser you may receive a warning that the certificate is not trusted. Because this certificate is generated on Vyatta NOS specifically for browser access, this message can be safely ignored and the certificate stored for future access.

To access and log in to the GUI

Note: For security reasons, it is strongly recommended that each user accessing the system from a web browser have an individual user account.
  1. Point your web browser at the IP address defined for the Ethernet interface. (Prefixing the IP address with https:// is optional.) The login screen opens in your browser.
  2. Log in. Any nonroot user may log in to the router through the GUI. Root login through the GUI is not supported for security reasons. The default nonroot user ID and password are as follows:
    User name: Vyatta
    Password: Vyatta
    Passwords are independent of the means of access: the CLI and the GUI use the same login credentials.

After you have logged in, the web GUI opens to its dashboard.
