Note : The previous default root password is now routinely tried by hackers during brute-force atacks. As a result, this procedure now changes the root password to This password is being protected from web crawlers. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We strongly recommend that you change this to something secure if the unit is to be connected to the Internet. Please see our Platinum security guide for more information.

This completes the procedure.
