This tutorial will describe how to alter the default password for your OpenVix installation.

Before we begin the tutorial you must ensure you have downloaded an application called PuTTY which will allow you to Telnet into your OpenVix installation.

The default username and password for your OpenVix box is: root / vuduo.
To update the password for your system please follow the steps below:

Open the PuTTY application and enter the IP Address of your OpenVix box into the "Host Name (or IP address)" section and ensure Telnet is selected as the "Connection type".

Once the details have been entered click "Open".
You will be prompted for a username "root" and the password "vuduo".
To update the password type "passwd" and hit "Enter".
It will then ask you for a new password and for you to confirm the new password:
