RE: Cisco, haven't we learned anything? (technician reset)

Many products have default STARTING passwords.  Whose fault is it that
someone can't figure out that it's not real bright if they don't change it?

The hidden ones are more an issue (with static passwords as opposed to
generated ones).


PS.  If your briefcase still uses 0000 as the combination, I have no
sympathy for your missing items...  ;)

Interesting.  Is it limited to one-time use?  Are the network login 
services (SSH, telnet, et al.) prevented from using this login and 

        I know the AP350 comes with a default Cisco/Cisco account..

        (as opposed to doing a nvram/config clear and it only lets you login
on console).

        problem is with cisco each product group controls how they ship
their system, so the Aironet teams don't quite seem to get this IMHO.  That
doesn't mean your 76k/GSR/CRS-1 will have Cisco/Cisco, but your aironet
products sure may.
