What’s New in RLM 16.0


Version 16.0 brings an all-new web management interface to RLM, with many changes. End-user documentation may need to be updated before distributing RLM to your users. For an overview of the new interface, see the overview video on our blog.

  • The RLM web interface now uses HTTPS by default. Self-signed certificates are automatically generated on startup. If no cert or key are found, the web server will be disabled. See “Enabling HTTPS in the RLM Web Server for more information.

  • The RLM web server now starts with a default login and password. Users will be prompted to change password on first login.

    • Default login: admin

    • Default password: admin

  • New user permissions: View, Manage, and Admin

  • Diagnostics are now presented directly in the web interface. Users now have the option to download directly to their local machine.

  • ISV actions now available via the kebab () menu on each server.

  • License and usage information now directly available on home page.

  • RLM and ISV options files are now read-only from the interface.


The rlm.pw file is no longer used. User credentials are now managed within the web server.
