We are testing a 3rd party system with our SX20. Is there a way to disable password prompting for SSH/Telnet? I see where this can be done, but cannot find out how to disable it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just as a comment, since we are also working partially with 3rd party Touch Panels only supporting telnet....
just for security reasons, we are changing them to Touch 10" now.
Instead of thinking how to disable a login prompt, you more should consider to change to some device at least supporting ssh, nothing less....
Securing devices is already a point.......
I tried it with Telnet, still got prompted for username and password, even though no password was set. Doesn't look like what you want will work, as it will always prompt you to login.
Because the SX20 isn't an integrators codec, there won't be much support in the way of 3rd party devices. You can make a RS232 serial connection, but it would require a USB to RS323 adapter to connect to the USB port on the SX20. See the SX20 API Reference Guide for more details.
I was looking up something for another discussion, and found the following in the TC6 Release Notes:
Password always prompted on Telnet and SSH.
When signing into the video system using Telnet or SSH, the password will always be prompted. This applies even when the password is empty (not set).
Yeah, it's not possible, as it's always going to prompt you no matter what. I just happened to see that and figured I'd post it since it was listed in the TC6 release notes.
