Accessing BigConnect

BigConnect is a web application that you access through HTTPS on port 8889. All you need to do is point your web browser at the machine where BigConnect is running and specify the port number. For example, https://localhost:8889

The first time you access BigConnect it will prompt that the website uses an invalid SSL certificate. This is normal because we use a self-signed SSL certificate, so please ignore the error and continue.

BigConnect ships with a simple login screen where you only need to enter the username to access the system. If the username does not exist in the system, it will be automatically created.

Every user that logs in to the system using the default configuration is granted Administrator access.
