Logging into the web interface

The IP VCR web interface is used for administering the IP VCR device, managing recordings, users, and pre-defined endpoints. You can also perform many recording-related tasks using the web interface that you cannot otherwise do.

When connecting to the IP VCR web interface, you must log in so that the IP VCR can associate the session with your configured user and a set of access privileges. The IP VCR has a set of configured users, and each user has a username and password that are used for logging in.

  1. Using a web browser, enter the host name or IP address of the IP VCR.
  2. To log in, click Log in and enter your assigned Username and Password.
  3. Click OK

The main menu appears, restricting the available options based on your access privileges. Administrators have full access; standard users can upload new recordings and manage their profiles; guest users typically can access publicly available recordings.

The Login page of the IP VCR displays a welcome banner which administrators can configure to display text relevant to your organization. For more information, refer to Customizing the user interface.

If you have problems logging in, see Failing to log into the web interface.
