Kerio Operator Administration is currently localized into several languages. Select yours in the top right corner of the interface. The default language is set according to your browser language settings.
This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to log in and set up the configuration wizard.
Before you log in for the first time, make sure you have:
- DNS name of the server with Kerio Operator.
- Supported browser. (Go the End-user tab in the link to see the supported browsers.)
- To log in, enter the DNS name of the computer with Kerio Operator:
- Administration runs solely via the HTTPS protocol on port 4021.
- The address is automatically redirected to:
NOTE: If the Private Branch Exchange (PBX) is located behind a firewall, HTTPS on port 4021 must be enabled.
- If the URL is entered correctly, your browser displays a warning about an SSL certificate.
- After the installation, Kerio Operator creates a certificate which is not signed by a trusted certificate authority — it is a self-signed certificate.
- Since you know the certificate can be trusted, you can add the security exception and continue to a login page.
When you connect to the PBX for the first time, a configuration wizard is required to do the necessary configuration. Here are those settings:
- Set the configuration wizard language.
- Accept the Kerio Operator license agreement.
- Set a password for the administration account (be sure to remember the password, you will need it to log in to the PBX).
NOTE: This admin password is synchronized with a password of user root in the operating system where Kerio Operator is installed (Kerio OS).
- Set the time zone of Kerio Operator (requires a restart of the PBX).
- Set the PBX language for communication with you and other users (warnings, auto attendant scripts, voicemail, etc.).
- Configure the first extension number. If you use phone provisioning, extensions are created automatically beginning with the number you enter here.
- After successful configuration, the login page is displayed.
- Enter the username and password you created earlier.
To change the password, use the following steps:
- Login to Kerio Operator using the HTTPS protocol. (e.g., https://operator.company.com/admin)
- Open the Configuration > Users section.
- In the user list, select the administrator account you are logged in with and double-click on it.
- Change the password on the tab General.
Verify that the password has been changed successfully by signing in again.
