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 DeviceSetupInterfaces 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.
