Default Guest and Administrator Credentials
Even with care to use both secure connections and password authentication the
JNIOR may be easily compromised if the default user accounts are not removed
or given unique strong passwords. Surprisingly a large percentage of JNIORs
are left with the default user accounts. A common oversight is to change the
password on the 'jnior' administrator account while leaving the secondary
'admin' administrator account active and with default credentials.
To insure security, you MUST remove any unused user accounts and change the
passwords from their defaults on remaining accounts.
The JNIOR may be supplied with two (2) default administrator accounts 'jnior'
and 'admin', a default 'user' account and a default 'guest' account. The
default passwords are simply the usernames. JANOS command line functions
provide for user management. Use the PASSWD command to alter passwords from
their defaults. Use the USERMOD command to disable unused accounts or the
USERDEL command to remove accounts. The USERS command is used to list the

admin 3 Administrator
jnior 1 Administrator
user 2 Control
Users typically rely on the 'jnior' account for administration. It is
recommended that you remove the 'admin' account. The Support Tool defaults
to the 'jnior' account. The 'guest' account should also be disabled using
the USERMOD +D command.
