The Vantage Point Server utilizes a web-based interface for management.
You can do the following from the interface:
Restart the server
View and edit the configuration file
View a list of connected devices, the data points received from those devices, and the last received values from those points.
Accessing the Web-Based Interface
To access the interface from the machine running the Vantage Point Server, simply enter "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" into the address bar of a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Enter your login credentials to proceed to the main page of the interface.
To access the interface from a different machine on the same local network as the Vantage Point Server, enter into the address bar of a web browser the host name or IP address of the machine on which the Display Server is installed. Then enter your login credentials to proceed to the main page of the interface.
Remote access to the Vantage Point Server is possible but must first be setup with coordination from your Network Administrator. Specific instructions will vary depending on how your Network Administrator creates the connection, if your company allows such remote access.
