SunScreen 3.1 Lite Installation Guide

Managing Your Firewall

Use the administration GUI on the remote Administration Station (or the Screen) to manage your 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
  1. To configure and manage your Screen from your Administration Station, run a Java-enabled Web browser, and type the following URL:


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

  2. To login, 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.
