The Protector’s login page can be reached at https://127.0.0.1/login.php from within the VMWare virtual machine. The Protector’s default IP address is 192.168.1.2, so, once the VMWare virtual machine has started, you can login to the Protector by just pointing your browser to https://192.168.1.2/login.php from the host operating system (Windows) without going into the virtual machine. The same can be done from another computer in your LAN. When you login to the Protector from your host OS or computer, you must first add your computer’s IP to the list IPs. You can do this by pointing your https://192.168.1.2/adminip/ . Here you can enter the information as on step 8.

If you mistype your Unit ID you will not be able to activate your license. You can repeat the activation process by browsing to https://127.0.0.1/login.php?query=init
