Enable Web GUI on Brocade vRouter / Vyatta

June 4, 2017 Networking, Vyatta / vRouter

The following steps show you how to enable the HTTPS web based GUI on Brocade vRouter / Vyatta. By default, the web gui is disabled, so you must enable it via the command line interface if you wish to use it.
Enter configuration mode

$ configure

Enable the HTTPS service

# set service https

Commit the changes

# commit

Save the configuration

# save

Exit configuration mode

# exit

Example output

vyatta@vyatta:~$ configure
vyatta@vyatta# set service https
vyatta@vyatta# commit
[ service https ]
Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key
writing new private key to '/etc/lighttpd/server.pem'
[ service https ]
Stopping web server: lighttpd.
Starting web server: lighttpd.
Stopping PAGER server
Starting PAGER server
vyatta@vyatta# save
Saving configuration to '/config/config.boot'...
vyatta@vyatta# exit

If it is the first time you have enabled the web gui, it will automatically generate the RSA private keys, as shown in the example above.
You should now be able to access the web gui via the address https://your.vyatta.router.ip/
