Login and logoff
The HP Embedded Web Server (EWS) has screens that can be used to view product information
and change configuration options. The screens that appear, and the settings on them, vary
according to how you gain access to the EWS: as a general user, an information technology (IT)
administrator, or a service provider. These passwords can be customized by an IT administrator
or a service provider.
In a password-protected HP Embedded Web Server, only the Information tab is available to
users who do not log in by using the password. If no password has been set (which is the
default), all of the tabs are visible.
If a password has been set, you must log on as an IT administrator or a service provider to gain
access to the protected HP Embedded Web Server tabs (Settings and Networking).
For information about changing passwords as an IT administrator, see
“Security” on page 31
you are a service provider, see your product service guide.
To log in as an administrator
Use the following procedure to log in to the HP EWS as an administrator.
After you open the EWS, click the Log In link in the upper-right corner of the screen.
The Enter Network Password dialog box appears, as shown in the following illustration.
The appearance of the login screen might vary, depending on your operating system and
for the user name, type your password, and then click OK.
To log off as an administrator
Use the following procedure to log off.
Click the Log Off link.
To complete the logoff, close the browser.
If you do not close the browser, the connection to the product EWS continues to run and could
pose security risks.
