I have tryed many times ... now with the new version (2.1.1).
After the IP and network mask prompt, it shows me a screen with some information about how to access the admin system... use Fdisk /mbr if it fails, etc... and 1 button. When I click, it restarts... not asking me about the root and admin password, as I saw on many manuals... so, I can't log in.

Hello everyone,

I found one way to get a new root's password:

Boot in single user:

In order to do it you must press "e" to edit and write down "single" (without quotes) and press "b" to boot.

After it finishes to boot you will get a prompt. Finally you can change the password doing:

shell# passwd

Now you can type a new password Cheesy then just reboot and that's it!!!

If you wanna change the admin's password you need to do this:

(once you login)

shell# vi /var/efw/auth/users

and delete the line where admin is...then

shell# htpasswd /var/efw/auth/users admin

here it will ask you for a password. And that's the way I found to get root and admin's password...

I guess was a mistake or or someone forgot to ask for the password...anyway...I hope this tiny guide would be useful.

Regards,
Omar M

I had the same thing happen to me and I just used an earlier version and that is when I found that password on sourceforge. I may update but everyting is working great with ver 2.0

Thank you very much!!


I first used the default root password as said (endian).

Than I changed the password using passwd.

And finally, changed the admin password, as follows:

shell# vi /var/efw/auth/users

and delete the line where admin is...then

shell# htpasswd /var/efw/auth/users admin


Thanks again. By
