After installing IWSS on a host machine, an IWSS icon appeared in the machine desktop. When the icon is clicked, the console does not launch properly.
During a local installation, the IWSS installation program will create a shortcut in the Start Menu to access the web console. The shortcut contains the web console URL: http://localhost:1812/index.jsp.
If you are unable to access the web console using the above shortcut, then add "localhost" to the web browser's proxy bypass list. Also, make sure that "localhost" is mapped to 127.0.0.1 in the Windows hosts file.
