BimServer 18: Can't log in

I just installed BimServer 18, and have managed to get to the user interface website. Now I need a user name and password, which I have not set up yet. Is there a default?

I found the problem. I can log in from a different computer, but not from the computer where the Bim Server is installed. From the bimserver computer, I get an "Invalid login name or password" error message.

User name is Master Administrator. This works from a second computer, along with the password I created when installing the bimserver.

You should have been asked to create an administrator user/password when installing.
Read this post for a detailed back and forth on the same problem.

One possible solution was
The problem so simple indeed...that is because of my default browser..
so my step is :
01. Uninstall another browser
02. Change IE (Internet Explorer) as my default browser
03. After hit "START" then configuration page for new administrator user appear in IE browser successfully...

After that i can install another fav browser....n run my BIM server

As far as I saw, for me the default user name was

masteradmin

but you had to set password for it.

Thanks for your comments.

I restarted the server computer, and now I can sign in from both computers. The user name Master Administrator doesn't work. I need to use the short form masteradmin, as laszlonagy pointed out.

Here is what happened when I did it successfully:
Clicking the icon for BIM Server Manager 18 on the dock of the server computer opens the default browser (Safari) and goes to the address 120.0.0.1:1228. This connects to the (local) BIM Server, and brings up the login screen.

On my computer the address was:

http://127.0.0.1:1228/

The 127.0.0.1 IP address is usually the address of a proxy.
