Re: webgate version



Hope you are doing well.


Some quick info here.


Version 7.7.2.x is EOL/EOS now for which we dont provide engine updates as well.


This version was declared EOL/EOS on 12/31/2019


I suggest to upgrade your MWG as soon as possible to an latest/supported MWG version and with that in newer versions you get option to login to MWG GUI using HTML.

Web Gateway UI as in-browser HTML

Re: webgate version

Hi Alok


thanks for the reply


I am aware that this version is eol, however we are not able to update to a newer version currently


what I need to be able to do though, is log in to the gateway via the web browser rather than cli


is there a way to do this with the latest browsers (java plugin seems to no longer be supported )?

Re: webgate version

First, you can try to install Oracle Java JRE 8u201. As far as I remember, it was the last version compatible with MWG 7.7.2.

To access Web Gateway Java UI, open in a browser URL: https://MWG-ADDRESS:4712/ or http://MWG-ADDRESS:4711/ if you are using HTTP.

Do not log in. At the bottom there is a link to download Web Gateway UI Java Webstart. Do it (download it). Run saved jnlp file which will start Oracle Java and you will access MWG UI console.
