Password Protect Your Neon Responders
Neon Software recommends you password protect your Neon Responders in order to provide authenticated access to LANsurveyor's information and management features. By default, there is no password configured for a newly-installed Neon Responder. Use this tutorial to remotely configure the Neon Responder password.
Step 1 of 3: Draw a Map
Use the map you created in Draw Your Network Map or create a new map that includes all your Neon Responders. Make sure you select the Neon Responder option in the TCP/IP services section of the Create New Network Map dialog box.
Step 2 of 3: Select Neon Responders
Choose the "Select Neon Responders" option from the Navigate menu.
This will automatically select all computers on the map running a Neon Responder.
Step 3 of 3: Set the Password
Click the Manage icon on the LANsurveyor toolbar to display the Manage dialog box.
Select the Change Password option to display the Change Password dialog box. Or, simply select Change Password from the Manage menu.
Enter and confirm your password, then click OK.
Tell LANsurveyor when you want to change the password: now or at a scheduled time. Pick "now", and LANsurveyor will save the password on each of the computers selected on the LANsurveyor map.
