To perform initial configuration tasks, you must log in to View Administrator.

Verify that you are using a Web browser supported by View Administrator. See View Administrator Requirements.


Open your Web browser and enter the following URL, where server is the host name or IP address of the View Connection Server instance.


You access View Administrator by using a secure (SSL) connection. When you first connect, your Web browser might display a page warning that the security certificate associated with the address is not issued by a trusted certificate authority. This response is expected behavior because the default certificate supplied with View Connection Server is self-signed.


Click Ignore to continue using the current SSL certificate.


Log in using administrator credentials on the View Connection Server computer.

Initially, all users who are members of the local Administrators group (BUILTIN\Administrators) on the View Connection Server computer are allowed to log in to View Administrator.

After you log in to View Administrator, you can use View Configuration > Administrators to change the list of users and groups that have the View Administrators role.
