5. First steps with DynFi

After reading our Getting started with DynFi you are now with your DynFi program up and running.

5.1. Accessing your DynFi installation using its IP address

The most straightforward way to access your DynFi® software is to directly type the IP address and access it using your favourite browser.

By default, DynFi is deployed on port 9090. This default port can be changed in configuration (refer to configuration chapter).

5.2. Accessing your device using a domain name

Alternatively, you will need to setup your DNS services in order to point your favorite URL to the IP address of your DynFi instance.

Once setup has been configured, you can simply point your browser to your IP or DNS and you shall be able to access your configured DynFi instance.

In either case if you have made the right configuration, you shall end-up on a screen to accept License Agreement, like this one:

Once the License Agreement is accepted, you can create the very first user of your DynFi instance.

Note

The very first user has unlimited privileges. It is important not to share this account with other users (so this account is used by many people) but to create separate accounts for each real user.

After creating the superuser account, the user is signed in automatically and can perform further initial actions using initial dashboard.

Once the first appliance gets connected to DynFi, the dashboard screen will be filled with maps widget and other widgets added by the users.

Next time DynFi will prompt for username and password using the sign in screen.
