Introduction to the UI
An introduction to the WiFi Pineapple Web UI
The management interface is available at http://172.16.42.1:1471 and is accessible from the USB Ethernet connection and the management WiFi network configured during Setup.
Note the port in the URL: 1471. Without this port, you will get a blank page from the default webserver!
Upon browsing to the UI, you'll be greeted with the login page. The username is root, while the password is the one you set during Setup.
Once you've logged in, you'll see the Dashboard. At the top of the page is the title bar, which includes the current firmware version and buttons to view Notifications, view Informational Messages, or open the Web Terminal. The context menu (three dots) holds additional, less common options.

Notifications are a way for the system or modules to indicate a change in status or other message. They can have one of 5 notification levels: Info, Warning, Error, Success or Unknown. The messages are given a preview for a brief time in the title bar.
Click on the notifications icon to view all messages.

Informational Messages show you potential misconfigurations with your WiFi Pineapple, as well as telling you potential fixes for them.
The Web Terminal offers a fully featured Bash shell on the WiFi Pineapple without needing to use SSH. You can use it to completely manage the device, run tools, install packages and do anything else you would expect from a Linux computer.

On the side of the page, you will see the Sidebar. This sidebar houses convenient links to the system modules, and downloaded modules can be added to the sidebar for speedy access. You can extend the sidebar, showing the full names, by clicking the Show More button anchored at the bottom.
