86.7 Securing the Monitor Web Console

Accessing GroupWise agent status information from your web browser is very convenient. However, you might want to limit access to that information. You can configure the Monitor Agent to request a user name and password before allowing users to access the Monitor console. In addition, you can configure the Monitor Agent to detect break-in attempts in the form of repeated unsuccessful logins.

Use the ‑‑httpmonuser and ‑‑httpmonpassword startup switches when you start the Monitor Agent. For more information, see Using Monitor Agent Startup Switches.
