Launch the Web Interface

The following web browsers are supported for access to the web interface:
  • Internet Explorer 11+
  • Firefox 3.6+
  • Safari 5+
  • Chrome 11+
Perform the following tasks to launch the web interface.
  1. Launch an Internet browser and enter the IP address of the firewall in the URL field (https://<IP address>).
    By default, the management (MGT) interface allows only HTTPS access to the web interface. To enable other protocols, select
    Device
    Setup
    Interfaces
    and edit the
    Management
    interface.
  2. Log in to the firewall according to the type of authentication used for your account. If logging in to the firewall for the first time, use the default value
    admin
    for your username and password.
    • SAML
      —Click
      Use Single Sign-On
      (SSO). If the firewall performs authorization (role assignment) for administrators, enter your
      Username
      and
      Continue
      . If the SAML identity provider (IdP) performs authorization,
      Continue
      without entering a
      Username
      . In both cases, the firewall redirects you to the IdP, which prompts you to enter a username and password. After you authenticate to the IdP, the firewall web interface displays.
    • Any other type of authentication
      —Enter your user
      Name
      and
      Password
      . Read the login banner and select
      I Accept and Acknowledge the Statement Below
      if the login page has the banner and check box. Then click
      Login
      .
  3. Read and
    Close
    the messages of the day.
