Configuration and connection to Zabbix: Network Monitoring System on Debian 11
- To start the server, run the VM through Azure Portal.
- To work, you must open port 80 (TCP) in the network properties in the Azure firewall. If you want to use agents in active mode, you need to open TCP port 10051 in the AWS firewall.
- After starting the VM, you can go to the admin panel. To do this, go to the following address http://vm_ip/zabbix
- When you go to the site, a page with authorization will open.
Username to log in – “Admin” (note the case of text is important!)
In the password field, enter “zabbix”
- After entering your login information, you will be taken to the main page
- By default, the system includes checks and monitoring of this server itself according to various criteria.
Initial server setup with Debian
