Changing the Server's Default User Account Password (CTPView Server CLI)

For security purposes, change the password for the server's default user account at regular intervals. You can choose instead to delete the default user account when all other administrative configuration tasks have been completed.


Do not delete the default user account until after you have created another user account. Otherwise, you will not be able to log in to the server.

To change the password for the server’s default user account:

  1. Log in to the CTPView server as the default user, using either a directly connected keyboard and monitor or an SSH application over your network.

    You cannot use an SSH application to access the CTPView server until you have configured the server in your network and assigned it an IP address. See Configuring the Network Access (CTPView Server Menu).

    For the default account username, see Default CTPOS and CTPView Accounts and Passwords. You cannot log in using the root account.

  2. Enter passwd.
  3. When prompted, enter the new password for the default user account.
