Remote Setting and Managing of the Eon Terminal Passwords

By default, an Eon terminal's password is NOT set when the terminal comes "out of the box". Therefore we must ensure the terminal's password is set to the CSCF Thin Client Master Password before being placed into service. In the case of the NeoLinux operating system of the Eon terminals (see OsEons), this password corresponds to the root user account. This password allows a user manage a terminal's configuration either locally or remotely.

  • Logon to the Eon Management Terminal Server and Start the Eon Remote Management Software.
    • From an X-terminal type the following to connect to the Eon Management terminal server.
      rdesktop -g 1024x768 najas
    • Logon as an Administrator. It does not matter if it is domain or local administrator.
    • Start up the Eon EZ Remote Manager programme through the following path off the Start Button:
      Start > Programs > CSCF Thin Client Terminal Management > Neoware Eon Terminals > Neoware EZRemote Manager for Eons 3.0 > ezremote Manager 3.0 EE
  • Open the Eon Terminal Database.
    • From the top menu select File : Open
      • Navigate to: Local Disk (C:)\software\eon_ezremote_man\data\mfcf_neoware_eon_terms.rms
      • You will be prompted for a password, simply click on OK as the file is not password protected.
    • From the top menu select Settings : Password
    • Enter the CSCF Thin Client Master Password and click on OK.
  • Reboot the Eon Terminals.
    • Select the terminal(s) that are to be rebooted in the EZ Remote Manager.
    • Right click on your selection and choose Change Password from the popup menu.
    • Supply the new password for the terminal(s) and confirm it.
    • Click OK, to confirm the start of an update session.
    • Click Close, when all terminals are updated with a new password.
