No :). The GUI is disabled by default, there's an option to turn it on, 
but last I tried, I couldn't even login to it. We're seriously thinking 
of removing the GUI completely,  we really don't like how it's 
integrated into "traffic_manager", it ought to be a standalone GUI built 
on top of Apache or something. My personal preference would be to nuke 
all of the GUI, and if someone is interested, we do a complete rewrite 
using modern tools (Apache HTTPD + other tools).

We'd still need to keep the CLI part of the management system though, to 
expose an API for a Web GUI (and other monitoring tools) to be built on 
top of.
