In order to restrict access to sensitive commands, the VIP offers two
separate operating modes; Supervisor Mode and User Mode.
Supervisor Mode allows access to all command functions, including those
used to setup and conﬁgure the VIP unit. User Mode allows limited access
to command functions; users are able to invoke commands to review status
and read data, but are not allowed to change system parameters.
C.1. Security Mode at Start Up
When the password feature is enabled, the VIP will display a prompt each
time the Command Mode is accessed. If the Supervisor level password is
entered at this prompt, the unit will start up in Supervisor Mode. If a User
level password is entered, the VIP will start up in User Mode.
The VIP provides one Supervisor password and two User passwords. The
default Supervisor Password is "SUPER". The default User 1 Password is
"SMDR", the default User 2 Password is not deﬁned.

After contacting the dialback number, the password prompt will again be
displayed. If the Supervisor Password is entered at this point, the VIP will
start-up in Supervisor Mode; allowing access to all menu and command
functions. If a User Password is entered at the dialback prompt, the VIP
will start-up in User Mode; allowing limited access to command functions.
