User's Guide

A server administrator uses a web browser to connect to a running Web Console Server. You will see how the Web Console interface works, how you manage Corticon Servers in a distributed architecture, and how you manage and monitor the Decision Services that run on those servers.
Note: If you have not yet installed Corticon Server with the Web Console component on any network-accessible machine, refer to the Corticon Installation Guide for more information.
To connect to a running Web Console Server:
*On any device, in a supported browser, enter the hostname where Web Console is running followed by the port value (typically 8850) and then /corticon. For example:
*When you are on the machine that hosts the Web Console installation, simply choose Start > Progress > Corticon 5.7 Web Console
Logging in to the Web Console
Enter your user credentials in the Web Console login page. When you start using the Web Console, the one pre-defined user is the administrative user, admin, with the default password admin. If you are the administrator, you should change the default password soon after you log in. Only the admin user can add new users. All users have rights to deploy and manage Decision Services. If your role is as a user, obtain your user credentials from your Web Console administrator.
