For SmartServer 4.2 and higher, see Accessing the SmartServer IoT Configuration Page.

For SmartServer 3.3 and prior, see Configure Your SmartServer (Release 3.3 and Prior)

The SmartServer Configuration page provides the ability to configure the SmartServer network and system settings, as well as LON, BACnet, OPC UA, RS-485, and IAP/MQ server (Features Configuration page).

When you access the SmartServer Configuration page, the Network Configuration page appears with tabs at the top of the page for other configuration settings. From the System Configuration page, you can view SmartServer system information.

To open the SmartServer Configuration page, follow these steps:

Avoiding Browser Security Warnings

To avoid having browsers display a security warning when users access the SmartServer CMS or the SmartServer Configuration page, you can set up port forwarding for the SmartServer IoT and switch from using self-signed certificates. If you have access to the local DNS server, you can also set up a CNAME record for the SmartServer host address.

  1. Connect to the SmartServer as described in the section Connecting to Your SmartServer.

  2. On a client computer, open a compatible web browser as described in the section Open the SmartServer IoT CMS.

  3. In your browser, specify one of the following:   https://SmartServer_IPaddress  or https://smartserver-nnnnnn   (where nnnnnn is the SmartServer's install code. See Connecting to the Console using a LAN Connection as described in the section Connecting to Your SmartServer.) Named access using https://smartserver-nnnnnn works on networks that have a local DNS server. Otherwise, you may need to use https://smartserver-nnnnnn.local.

    The login page appears.

    Enhanced security

    If you re-imaged the SmartServer and enhanced security is enabled on your system, and your password does not meet the requirements, then you will be prompted to reset your password.

  4. Click Login.

    The log in dialog box appears prompting you to enter a username and password.

  5. Enter the username and password.  The default username is apollo and the default password is printed on the label on the bottom of the SmartServer.  If you changed either the username or password, use the username and password you selected.  Use the defaults if you did not change them.

  6. Click OK to login as appropriate for your web browser.

  7. The Network Configuration page appears enabling you to view and edit these settings. The menu bar at the top of the page provides the ability to go to the SystemLONBACnetOPC UA, RS-485, and Features configuration pages, as well as the CMS
