Logging into the WebUI is described in the User Guide:




from the CLI find the IP address assigned to the Expedition server:




open a browser session - https session to the IP address listed.


https://<ip assigned to your Expedition server>

password: 'paloalto'

Thanks for your guide


That I saw is Capture.PNG

Check your VM (in VMWare , not in the Expedition image itself) to verify the networking that you have offered to the virtual machine.


Either you have connected the VM to an interface that does not offer DHCP or it is not connected to a valid network interface at all.

You may want to give Expedition access to your network, so we would recommend that you connect the network interface that the VM will use to a network sharing internet using NAT.



Thanks Man, it worked.  is there any day-1  configuration kinda that needed to be done for it to work optimally?


It comes with a default set of settings that work fine with most cases.


If you require extra space for logs (in case you are going to do traffic log analytics) you may want to add another drive (preferably a SSD) and some extra RAM and CPUs if possible.

If you are going to import large files, check for the modification of the php.ini file (you can find this info in the forum).

Also, you can check and modify the Max time and Max RAM used for Parser processing via the Web UI in the Settings->Custom Parameters section.
