2.2. Access the Admin Console

The Admin Console is accessed using a web browser. By default, JBoss Application Server is configured to only offer this service on the local machine. To configure the Application Server to enable remote access of the Admin Console and other services, refer to the Installation Guide.


The Admin Console has been tested against and is supported for use with Mozilla Firefox 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 3.6; and Internet Explorer 6 and 7. It may also work in other browsers, but it is only supported in the browsers listed here.


Ensure that the Enterprise Application Platform has been configured as described in Section 2.1, “Security”, and is running locally.
