After the Supervisor Password has been defined, the CMS will
display a password prompt whenever you attempt to access the
command mode. If the correct Supervisor Password is entered,
the CMS then starts up in Supervisor Mode. Supervisor Level
commands are summarized in Section 11.3 of this User’s Guide.
Normally, the Supervisor Password can be entered at any port in
order to gain access to Supervisor Level commands. If you wish
to completely deny a port’s access to Supervisor Mode (even
with the Supervisor Password), the Port Parameters menus (/P
and /N) can disable the Supervisor Mode at ports 3 and above,
and the Network Port. The Supervisor Mode cannot be disabled
at System SetUp Ports 1 and 2, or at the one inbound Network
Port which always allows access to Supervisor Level commands,
as described in Section 8.1.
5.3.2. The Port Passwords
The Port Passwords (or User Passwords) allow administrators to
restrict access to a specific port or group of ports. When the
command mode is accessed with a Port Password, users may only
connect to the RS232 Ports to which they have been granted
access, and review configuration parameters for those ports. Port
Passwords do not grant access to CMS configuration commands.
The port configuration menus are used to assign a Port Password
to each individual port. In order to allow a Port Password to
grant access to several CMS ports, the same password is
assigned to each port to which the user will be allowed access.
For example, if the Port Password “test” is assigned to ports 3, 4,
and 6, then when “test” is entered at the Password Prompt, the
user will only be able to connect to ports 3, 4, and 6, and will
only be able to view parameters for ports 3, 4, and 6.
If desired, all CMS ports can function as either a Supervisor Port
or a User Port, depending on which password is entered at login.
However, if you wish to prevent a port from being able to access
the Supervisor Mode at all (even with the Supervisor Password),
the Supervisor Mode can be disabled at the RS232 Ports and the
Network Port using the Port Configuration menus as described in
Section 5.5. Note however, that the Supervisor Mode cannot be
disabled at RS232 Ports 1 and 2, or at the one network port that
always allows access to Supervisor Level commands (see
Section 8.1.)
