We have lost the servers password.  Does anyone know the default password to a Canon ImagePass S2 RIP server?

It is some tricky to change password.

One way is to contact support for password change option

http://www.usa.canon.com

Other way is boot system with some Linux "Redhat 9 or Fedora CD" and write

linux rescue

on the boot prompt. It would add the partition of your server at

/mnt/sysimage

you can edit file at

/mnt/sysimage/etc/passwd
remove  X from second field of root user

root:X:........................
OR if there is some encrypted password in the second field, remove it, ie.,

root:aBdjk3^.:

now save file and reboot the system

It sounds very interesting.  We did attempt to contact Canon tech support, but they were closed.

The ImagePass configuration page indicated that password is enabled. Will the server understand the passord is removed?

Thanks for the help.

You get the points.
