Vyatta Unable to log into GUI: “Username or password is incorrect”


When trying to access the GUI you may observe the following error,

Username or password is incorrect.Failed to parse server data.


This is due to a bug with VSE 6.5 R2. Which is caused by the Vyatta Appliance not having an interface named ‘eth0’ present.

To resolve this,

  1. Edit the file ’/config/config.boot’ via vi.
  2. Change one of your interfaces to eth0.
  3. And then reboot your device.
