SunScreen 3.1 Lite Installation Guide

Managing Your Firewall

Use the administration GUI to manage your SunScreen firewall. See the SunScreen 3.1 Administration Guide for more information.

By default there is a pre-defined rule to allow encrypted administration traffic between the Screen and the Administration Station. This is the only default rule so no other communication (like ping or telnet) is allowed between the two systems until you specifically define a rule to allow that service.

To Launch the Administration GUI

To configure and manage your Screen, launch the administration GUI from a Java-enabled Web browser.

  1. Open a Java-enabled Web browser and launch the administration GUI by typing the following URL:


    The administration GUI appears (as shown in the following figure).

    Figure 3-12 Administration GUI Login Page


  2. To log in, type the following and click Login:

    User Name: admin
    Password: admin

    You next configure and manage your Screen with the administration GUI. See the SunScreen 3.1 Administration Guide for further instructions.

    Note -

    One of your first administration tasks should be to change the default User Name and Password to something more secure so you can reduce the risk of compromising the administration traffic.
