Description

Access level

Administrator

As an Administrator, you can add, edit, or delete user entries. In addition, you can set up Feature servers for users.

Technician

As a Technician, you can edit the fields that control the servers as well as add or delete servers.

Login ID

The default is vovida.

Password

The default is vovida.

See the next section, "Password Maintenance,” for information about setting your own user ID and password.

Password Maintenance

There is a separate user interface for changing passwords and adding or removing accounts for administrators and technicians. (For information about editing the passwords for end users, see "Adding New Users" later in this chapter.)

At the time this is being written, password maintenance is not set up as an applet, but you can run it in standalone mode. The executable is included in the psClient.jar. The main class is:

vocal.pw.AdminAcctManager.

The syntax of the command is as follows:

java -classpath /path/to/psClient.jar:path/to/xerces.jar
vocal.pw.AdminAcctManager pServer_host pServer_port

On our test system, we typed, from /usr/java/jre1.3.1_01/bin:

               java -classpath /usr/local/vocal/bin/psClient.jar:/usr/local/vocal/bin/xerces.jar
 vocal.pw.AdminAcctManager 192.168.10.10 6005

Tip

There is a space rather than a colon between pServer_host and pServer_port. If you insert a colon, the JRE will return an error.

The Manage Administrative Accounts screen appears with a list of all login IDs.

Adding new IDs

To add a new Administrator or Technician account:

  1. Right-click anywhere over the user listings. A menu appears.

  2. Select Add. A dialog box appears.

  3. Fill in the ID and password fields. Select one or both access levels.

  4. Click OK to submit the new ID.

Editing existing IDs

To edit the accounts of existing administrators or technicians:

  1. Click to select an ID.

  2. Right-click anywhere over the user listings. A menu appears.

  3. From this menu, select Edit. A dialog box appears.

  4. Edit the data as required.

  5. Click OK to submit your changes.

Login Procedure

To log in as an administrator:

  1. Select Administrator. You will select Technician later when you work with dialing plans and server configurations in Chapter 4.

  2. Enter a valid login ID and password. The default for both is vovida.
