There are three different passwords that can be changed in the radio.
The web interface password can be changed from the user setting menu.
To change your CLI config node password, use the passwd command at the CLI config node. Usage is as follows:
Passwd <new_password> <confirm_password>
<new_password> must be at least 4 characters and no more than 10 characters <new_password> and <confirm_password> must be identical for the new password to take effect.
To change the CLI view node (the login node) password, enter debug mode and use the command:
debug> passwd admin
It will then prompt you through entering a new password for the user admin. You will be prompted to create a secure (not short, not weak) password when changing.
To view all passwords, including snmp community strings, on the radio, from CLI-config node, you can use the command "show passwords" which will display all the current passwords. For this reason it is recommended that you secure access to the CLI via telnet, ssh and console with a secure password.
