Log in to the MCS console for the first time and set up access rights for specific user accounts.


You access the MCS console for the first time using the "system" account and the password that was entered during the MCS installation. For subsequent access, you assign console access rights to one or more users in the directory service.

Note The first time you log on in the MCS console, a security message is displayed. To trust the signed applet distributed by Attachmate, choose Yes or Always. If you choose Always, the message is not displayed again.

Using your Web browser, you can access the Management & Control Services (MCS) console either locally, from the server on which it is installed, or remotely, from a networked PC. You must use one of the supported Web browsers.
