By default, the zabbix web interface is only accessible through the local network, via https. Also, the guest account is deleted upon installation.
A strong password is generated for the administrator account. After
the deployment, the password is stored in the deployment backup

Setting up Jabber alerts
To receive alerts via the XMPP protocol, it is necessary to activate the Jabber media type inthe Zabbix administration console.
Use any account to send alerts, for instance the postmaster account.
Once this setup, the alerts are visible in any XMPP compatible client.
