Opening the ESMC Web Console

ESET Security Management Center Web Console is the main interface used to communicate with ESMC Server. You can think of it as a control panel, a central place from which you can manage all ESET security solutions. It is a web-based interface that can be accessed using a browser from any place and any device with internet access.

There are multiple ways to open the ESMC Web Console:

On your local server (the machine hosting your Web Console) type this URL into the web browser:

From any place with internet access to your web server, type the URL in following format:
Replace "yourservername" with the actual name or IP address of your web server.

To log into the ESMC Virtual appliance, use following URL:
https://[IP address]/
Replace "[IP address]" with the IP address of your ESMC VM.

On your local server (the machine hosting your Web Console), click Start > All Programs > ESET > ESET Security Management Center > ESET Security Management Center Web Console - a login screen will open in your default web browser. This does not apply to the ESMC Virtual appliance.

When web server (that runs ESMC Web Console) is up, the following login screen is displayed.


If this is your first login, please provide the credentials you entered during the Installation process. For more details about this screen, see Web Console login screen.



If you experience problems logging in or receive error messages while trying to log in, see Web Console Troubleshooting.
