This article describes methods you can use to access and manage your Datto appliance.
Ensure that your Datto appliance's networking environment meets the compatibility requirements described in this article before proceeding.
Accessing a Datto Device through the Web GUI
Management options for your Datto appliance are available through its browser-based user interface. You can access the device GUI through several methods.
Accessing the Datto Device from the LAN
If you are on the same LAN as your appliance, you can access the device directly. This method can be faster than accessing the appliance GUI through a remote location, and is useful when troubleshooting connectivity issues which may be preventing the device from reaching outside the network. See Accessing a Datto Device Through Remote Web: LAN to learn more.
Accessing the Datto Device from the Partner Portal
If you're not onsite with the Datto appliance, you can access it remotely from the Datto Partner Portal. See Accessing a Datto Device Through Remote Web: Remote Location to learn more.
Accessing a Datto Device through IPMI
You can also remotely manage a Datto appliance through IPMI, a remote hardware management interface. See this article for more information.
