Accessing the Web Interface

To access the web interface, type in the address bar of your browser the following address:


where <host_with_drweb> is the IP address or the name of the host where Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers operates with the Dr.Web HTTPD web interface server, and <port> is the port (on this host) which Dr.Web HTTPD is listening on. To access Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers component which operates on the local host, use IP address or the name localhost. By default, the <port> is 4443.

Thus, to access the web interface on the local host by default, enter the following URL in the browser address bar:

After the connection to the managing server is established, the startup page opens and displays the authentication form. To access management functions, fill in the authentication form by specifying the login and password of a user who has administrative privileges on the host where Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers operates.

If you need, you can provide the authorization on the web interface using a personal user certificate. To do so:

1.Create a personal certificate signed by a certificate authority certificate.

2.Import the signed certificate as a user authorization certificate in the browser that is used to connect to the web interface for management.

3.In the Dr.Web HTTPD settings (parameter AdminSslCA), specify a path to the certificate authority certificate that signs your personal certificate.

If you use a personal user certificate for the authorization on the web interface, the authorization form does not appear, the user is authorized as root.

If necessary, refer to the Appendix E. Generating SSL certificates section.
