In most cases, a password with Supervisor Access can be entered at any port,
allowing the user to invoke Supervisor level commands. However, if you
wish to completely deny a speciﬁc port’s access to Supervisor commands (even
with a password that normally permits them), the Port Parameters menus can
disable Supervisor commands at ports 3 and above, and the Network Port. The
Supervisor Mode cannot be disabled at Ports 1 and 2 (the System Setup Ports.)
For a summary of commands and status screens available to Supervisors and
non-Supervisors, please refer to Section 13.
5.5.2. Port Access
Each account can be granted access to a different selection of ports. Accounts
with Supervisor access are always allowed to establish connections with all
ports, but accounts without Supervisor Access can be restricted to a speciﬁc
port or group of ports. Note also, that several accounts can be allowed access
to the same port.
5.6. Managing User Accounts
The User Directory function is employed to create new accounts, display
parameters for existing accounts, modify accounts and delete accounts. Up to
128 different user accounts can be created. The "User Directory" function is
only available when you have logged into command mode using an account
and port that permit Supervisor commands.
