Secure Remote Access Console Administration

Console Interface

  1. After you have finished deploying your B Series Appliance, you can connect a monitor and keyboard and use the machine console to access some administrative functions.
  2. The first screen of the machine console lists the hostnames and IP addresses for this B Series Appliance. To make basic configuration changes from this window, press Enter.


Console Admin Login

  1. From the menu, make a selection. You can log in to make configuration changes. You also can enter support codes to allow an appliance-initiated support tunnel back to BeyondTrust Technical Support to enable quick resolution of complex issues.
  2. Log in for more options. You can configure networking, allow an advanced support tunnel, shut down or reboot the B Series Appliance, or reset the B Series Appliance password or a site's administrative password.


Console Networking Interface

  1. Select Networking to manage the hostname, IP addresses, the default gateway, static routes, and DNS servers.
  2. Select a network interface to manage its speed or duplex communication. You also can add or edit IP addresses.

Administrative functions can also be performed by accessing the B Series Appliance administrative interface from a web browser on your computer. To access that interface, and for more information on network configuration settings, see Initial Network Configuration During BeyondTrust Appliance B Series Setup.
