2. Launch the Gateway

The Ignition Gateway is a web server. When it is running, you can access it through a web browser in just a few steps.

If you're not already logged into Ignition, enter the credentials for the administrator or user with full privileges for the Gateway. The default login credentials for the Gateway are username: admin and password: password.

  1. Figure out the IP address of the computer you installed Ignition on. If this computer is the one Ignition is installed on, then you can use localhost instead of the IP.

  2. Open up a web browser and go to the Gateway's webpage: http://localhost:8088. If the Gateway is installed on a different server/computer, then you'll need to know the IP address or host name. Example: http://ipaddress:8088.


    The first time you go to the Gateway webpage, it shows you the links to download the Designer, Vision Client Launcher, Perspective Workstation, and Perspective Session Launcher.

  3. To navigate back to the Gateway Homepage, click the Home button.
