The Colibri's web interfaces allow the user to configure remote access options.

Known Issues

Browser Issues

Some browsers report an error message Unable to find object during the login process or when browsing the web interface. We saw this issue with some versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox. However the web interfaces still can be used in most cases. If it doesn't work at all, please use another browser.

Windows Vista / Windows 7

The default security settings of Windows Vista and Windows 7 block the login into the Colibri's web interfaces.

In order to enable the access, the security policy for NTLMv2 needs to be changed:

  1. Start -> Run
    secpol.msc
  2. Go to
    Local Policies -> Security Options
  3. Edit the properties of the Policy
    Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
  4. Change the level to
    Send LM & NTML -use NTLMv2 session sec if negotiated
  5. Reboot your operating system

Web Interfaces

Remote Admin

The Remoteadmin (Windows CE Remote Management Tool) allows you to

  • share files and printers
  • manage user accounts.

To access RemoteAdmin, open your web browser and type the following address:

"http://[colibri's ip address]"

or 

"http://[colibri's ip address]/remoteadmin/"

The first time Remoteadmin is accessed, it asks for the administation password:

Enter a password. This action enables the user admin and it can be used in further sessions of remoteadmin, webadmin, telnet etc.

For any further accesses to the RemoteAdmin page, you will be asked to log in:

Web Admin

The webadmin interface allows you to enable and configure a web server on the Colibri module.
To access WebAdmin, open your web browser and type the following address:

"http://[colibri's ip address]/webadmin/"

You will be asked to log in. Use the username admin and the password you entered when you used RemoteAdmin the first time.

Sys Admin (CE5 only)

The SysAdmin interface is only available in Windows CE 5. The SysAdmin interface allows you to launch and kill processes, to browse files and to edit the registry on the Colibri module.
To access SysAdmin, open your web browser and type the following address:

"http://[colibri's ip address]/sysadmin/"

You will be asked to log in. Use the username admin and the password you entered when you used RemoteAdmin the first time.

Disable service

Rename the value in the following registry key:

[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Services/HTTPD ]
Dll = "_HTTPD.DLL"  ; was "HTTPD.DLL"

Save the registry and the next time you boot the service will not be loaded again.

Reset Admin Password

In case you lost your admin password and want to log in again you have two options:

Either you clear the registry. This is a quick task but you will loose all your registry settings as well. Or you can reset the admin user. You have to do the following steps.

Reset the following registry entry to 0

[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\HTTPD\VROOTS\/remoteadmin ]
A = dword:00000000

On CE 5 remove the following key:

[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\HTTPD\SECURITY\USERS\ADMIN ]

On later versions remove this key:

[ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\SECURITY\USERSACCOUNTS\ADMIN ]

Save the registry and reboot your module. After that you have to enter a new password in the webinterface.
