Opening the Administration Interface
By default the Administration Interface is set up on a different ports to improve security through a specialized firewall configuration. We recommend to disable these ports for external access or to limit access only to administrators with special permissions. By default the Administration Interface can be accessed via https on port 8080 or via http on port 9090. For instance:
Administration Interface on HTTPS https://cryptshare.yourdomain.com:8080 Administration Interface on HTTP http://cryptshare.yourdomain.com:9090
Upon first installation of a Cryptshare Server only the user 'Administrator' can login to the system. Additional users can be added in the section 'User Administration'.
Default User: AdministratorDefault Password: cryptshare
