Access the Admin Console with the AppWave Browser

If you have installed AppWave as an End-User, AppWave Browser installs and launches automatically. During the installation process you are requested to chose an installation option between For Administrators and For End-Users. If you select the For End-Users you also install the AppWave Browser, otherwise you have to access the administrative page through a regular browser, but you can install the AppWave Browser later.

How to access the Admin console:

  1. Log in to AppWave with the default administrator user name and password admin/admin.

To secure your AppWave follow the steps:

  1. Go to SYSTEM MANAGEMENT > System Properties page.
  2. Set Restricted mode to On and Allow client to register user to Off.
  3. You should also edit the All Users group and the All Apps folder, and the user to limit the licenses available for that user.
