The WebMux management port is designed to allow you to secure management access to the WebMux GUI and command line interface on a separate network from the load balancing traffic of the WebMux. For best security DO NOT set a management port IP address that is on either from the WebMux “router LAN IP” nor “server LAN” subnets.
By default, the management port is set with the IP address of 192.168.10.21 with the netmask of 255.255.255.0. You can connect to it by setting your client computer with an IP address in the 192.168.10.x network and connecting it to the management port of the WebMux. You can then access the WebMux GUI at http://192.168.10.21:24 or https://192.168.10.21:35. You can also access the WebMux CLI by telnet on port 87 or by ssh on port 77.

The new IP address should now be active on the management port and the MGMT LAN front panel switch indicator will show it is active.
