Logging in to MCS for the First Time

The first time you log in to the MCS console, you must use the predefined "system" account.

To log in to the MCS console for the first time
  1. For an unsecured (http) connection, run your Web browser and enter the following URL:
    http://host:port/mcs

    where host is the IP address or domain name of the server on which MCS is running (or "localhost" if running locally), and port is the port on which MCS is listening. For example, http://myhost:8086/mcs.

    -or-

    For a secured (https) connection, enter the following URL:
    https://host:SSLport/mcs

    where host is the IP address or domain name of the server on which MCS is running, and SSLport is the secured port on which MCS is listening. For example, http://myhost:8447/mcs.

    -or-

    (Windows only) Click the Start button, point to Programs, and then click Attachmate Management and Control Services.

    This method is applicable only from the PC on which MCS is installed. Also, this method does not create a secure connection; for a secure connection, use the preceding method.

  2. When prompted, type the user name system and the password that was specified during installation.

  3. If a security message is displayed, to trust the signed applet distributed by Attachmate, choose Yes or Always. If you choose Always, the message will not be displayed again.
