To create a new administrator-level user account:
1.
At the D400#>> prompt, type d400cfg and press Enter.
2.
Enter 1. Configure Authentication.

Respond to the on-screen prompts as required to create a new administrator-level user. You may now use this user
account to access the D400 remotely through TELNET or SSH.
