About the PCoIP Administrative Web Interface¶
The PCoIP Administrative Web Interface (AWI) enables you to interact remotely with a PCoIP endpoint. From the AWI, you can manage and configure a client, view important information about it, and upload firmware and certificates to it.
Disabled by default
As of firmware 6.4, the AWI is disabled by default. See Configuring Access to Management Tools for instructions on how to enable the AWI.
After you type the device’s IP address into an Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome browser, the browser will use HTTPS to connect to the device’s AWI web page. Access to the AWI is controlled using an administrative password, which can be optionally disabled. The Zero Client supports one AWI login at a time. If a user attempts to login to the AWI while another user is logged in, the AWI provides a warning that a user is currently logged in. Should a user continue to login the existing user is disconnected.
The AWI’s HTTPS connection is secured using a PCoIP root Certificate Authority (CA) certificate. To avoid warning messages when you log into the AWI, it is recommended that you install this certificate in your browser. The certificate file (cacert.pem) is always included in a firmware release, but you can also download it directly from How do I get the fix the unsecure browser warning when accessing the Management Console 2.x and 3.x web interface? (1406). Detailed instructions on how to install the certificate are also included in the knowledgebase article.
The following browsers are supported in this release:
- Firefox: current version
- Chrome: current version
- Microsoft Edge: current version
