Reset user password on Nodes

Updated 6 months ago by Mark Manolio

SCOPE

This applies to the "classic" Axia nodes as well as the xNodes.

PROBLEM

The user password has been reset to something other than the default password of blank you you do not know what it is.

RESET THE PASSWORD USING TELNET

  1. Using a terminal program like Putty, telnet to the node on port 93
  2. All in caps, type the following where ^ is the CTRL key.
LOGIN^B^A^F
Note that this not the "up caret"
You need to type LOGIN(ctrl+B)(ctrl+A)(ctrl+F)
  1. Press enter.
This will move you to a new line (no other confirmation is shown)
  1. Type (in caps) PASSWD then press the space key once, then press enter.

Your "user" password on your node has now been set to blank.
