VCL-MX Version 6 - Installing GUI (Graphical User Interface)

Introduction
The VCL-MX Version 6-NMS GUI is designed to assist the user in configuring the VCL-MX Version 6-NMS
system, locally, through a serial RS232 / USB (COM port), or remotely using TELNET over TCP/IP link.
It also lets the user monitor multiple units (up to 2000 units) in real time and alerts the users in the event of
any alarms by receiving and monitoring the SNMP traps.
To start the GUI, first, connect the equipment to a PC through a serial (RS232 or USB port), or through its
10/100BaseT port and then open the GUI.
The following authentication window will appear:

There are 11 regions defined. The following are given below:


1. Default 2. Sector-01 3. Sector-02 4. Sector-03
5. Sector-04 6. Sector-05 7. Sector-06 8. Sector-07
9. Sector-08 10. Sector-09 11. Sector-10
Every sectors have three layer security with default user name and password.

Default system User Name and Password are:


Super User
User Name: admin
Password : admin
The 'Super User' has the full control over GUI.

User
User Name: user
Password : user
The 'Normal User' is a limited access user.

Operator
User Name: operator
Password : operator
The 'Operator' is a limited access user.
If we go through the 'Default' region we can add the nodes to any region and access all the nodes available in the
network. However if we go with any particular region we can not modify or access the nodes available with
another region.
