Launching GFI WebMonitor
On the same machine where GFI WebMonitor is installed:
There are two options for launching the GFI WebMonitor Management ConsoleAn interface that provides administration tools that enable the monitoring and management of Internet traffic.:
- Option 1: click Start > All Programs > GFI WebMonitor > GFI WebMonitor Management Console
- Option 2: Key in the URLUniform Resource Locator. http://18.104.22.168 or http://127.0.0.1:1007 in a web browser on the same machine.
If using the GFI WebMonitor through the web browser interface on the same machine, Internet browser must be configured to use a proxy server. For http://127.0.0.1:1007 disable Bypass proxy server for local addresses from Internet options.
In http://127.0.0.1:1007, 1007 refers to the port on which the GFI WebMonitor Management Console listens by default. If this listening port is changed, the URL used to access the Management Console should reflect this, for example
http://127.0.0.1:<port>. This is different from the port on which the GFI Proxy listens for incoming connections.
From a remote machine:

The Internet browser must be configured to use specific proxy settings to enable this access. For http://127.0.0.1:1007 disable Bypass proxy server for local addresses from Internet options.
