Launching Web GUI
To test whether the server can be accessed by a management workstation, launch the Web GUI.
To launch the Web GUI:
Open a browser connection to the SBR Carrier server you want to administer.
To administer a SBR Carrier server running on your local host, enter https://localhost:2909, where the port assignment of 2909 is the SBR Carrier’s default TCP port for administration connections.
To administer a SBR Carrier server running on a remote host, enter https://server:2909, where the port assignment of 2909 is the SBR Carrier’s default TCP port for administration connections. For example:https://192.168.24.15:2909/
Make sure that you access the Web GUI using HTTPS instead of HTTP.
The Login page (Figure 14) appears.
You can use the https.port parameter in the https.ini file located in the /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/website/webserver/jetty/start.d/ path to change the default port.
Using a non-default port or modifying other parameters in the /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/website/webserver/ directory incorrectly could cause communication problems between the Web GUI and the SBR Carrier server.
Enter your administrator username in the Username field.
Enter your login password in the Password field.
When you click Login, Web GUI establishes an HTTPS connection with the local or remote server. The Web GUI displays an error message if the connection cannot be established.
If a timeout occurs, verify that the Web browsers are running on the target server using the sbrd status command and that it is listening on the administration port you entered in the URL; that the port is not blocked.
Web GUI verifies that the username you entered exists in the access.ini file. If the username is found, Web GUI validates the password you entered against a local or remote password database.
When you connect to a server, the Home page lists various features of the running server, such as version, platform on which it is running, IP address, available authentication methods, license information, and any initialization errors that might have occurred.
