Changing the Administrator User Name and Password


Note:  All ScreenOS firewalls are shipped with the same user name and password. Because of this, we recommend you change your user name and password as soon as possible.

To change the administrator user name and password, perform the following steps:

Step one: Open the WebUI. For more information on accessing the WebUI, go to Accessing Your NetScreen Using the WebUI.

Step two: From the ScreenOS options menu, click Configuration, select Admin, and then click Administrators.
