Endian UTM Appliance is an Open Source Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance software. This document is a concise reference to the Endian UTM Appliance web interface.

Accessing the Endian UTM Appliance GUI

To access the Endian UTM Appliance GUI is as simple as starting your browser and entering the IP address of the internal (GREEN) interface or the hostname of your Endian UTM Appliance.

Your browser will be redirected to a secure HTTPS connection (port 10443). Since Endian UTM Appliance uses a self-signed HTTPS certificate, your browser might ask you to accept the certificate during the first connection. The system will then ask for username and password. Specify “admin” as the username and provide the password you set during the installation or, if you bought an appliance, the one you got from your reseller.

You should now be looking at the start page of your Endian UTM Appliance GUI. You can immediately start exploring the different options and the information available to you through this interface. The rest of this guide follows the layout of the main navigation bar - each chapter corresponds to one of the main navigation items.

Features and enhancements in version 2.4

Hotspot, SmartConnect
SmartConnect allows users to create connection tickets through a simple web interface, pay for the connection with their credit card and immediately receive their credentials on their cellphones via SMS. The whole process is managed by Endian Hotspot.
Hotspot Satellites
Hotspot Satellites give you the ability to use one userbase on hotspots in different physical locations. This new feature allows administrators to control the user database, the portal configuration and authentication centrally while the connection is managed locally.
OpenVPN Flexibility
OpenVPN can now be configured in a much more flexible way. It is possible to use TUN interfaces on the OpenVPN client page as well as to configure the zone to which an OpenVPN account should be bridged. Additionally it is now also possible to choose the zone for the OpenVPN server.


Without the great work of the Smoothwall and then the IPCop team, neither Endian UTM Appliance nor this document would exist. Therefore we would like to thank them all for their hard work.

Thanks to Sourceforge for the hosting. Without Sourceforge we would not have the possibility to gain such a huge worldwide visibility. You are really helping us very much!
