Accessing the Kura Gateway Administration Console
Kura provides a web-based, user interface for the administration and management of your IoT gateway. The Kura Gateway Administration Console enables you to monitor the gateway status, manage the network configuration, and manage the installed application and services. Access to the Kura Gateway Administration Console requires that a unit running Eclipse Kura is reachable via its Ethernet or Wi-Fi network interfaces (i.e., eth0, eth1, or wlan0). The default (out-of-the-box) network configuration for the supported platforms is as follows:
- Raspberry Pi 3
- Status: Enabled for WAN
- Configure: DHCP (DHCP client)
- Status: Enabled for LAN
- Configure: Manually (Static IP)
- IP Address: 172.16.1.1
- Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
- Wireless Mode: Access Point
- SSID: kura_gateway_<eth0_MAC_Address>
- Wireless Security: WPA/WPA2
- Passphrase: testKEYS
Connections on HTTP port 80 for these interfaces is allowed by default through the built-in firewall. The Kura Gateway Administration Console can be accessed by typing the IP address of the gateway into the browser’s URL bar. Once the URL is submitted, the user is required to log in and is then redirected to the Administration Console (e.g., 172.16.1.1/kura) shown in the screen capture below. The default login name and password is admin/admin.
It is recommended to change the default password after initial setup and before deployment, as well as limiting access to the Administration Console to a trusted local network interface using appropriate firewall rules.
