Dell 2161 DS-2 PowerEdge KVM switch password?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I just installed a Dell 2161 DS-2 KVM switch. From the console, everything works fine. I configured it with an IP address and I installed the RCS software on my pc which is on the same subnet. When I launched the RCS software, i added the device by pointing it to the 2161's IP address. It found the device no problem. But when I try to launch either the switch through the Remote Console Switches tab or any of the visible servers on the Servers tab, it prompts me for a password and nothing seems to work. I tried all combo's of admin, blank, password, etc to no avail. Is there a special default password this uses? I couldn't find anything in the documentation. When i tried it via a browser, I get a Dell secreen and another password prompt that I can't get past. Any help would be appreciated.
