Using the ProCurve Web Browser Interface
Tasks for Your First ProCurve Web Browser Interface Session
N O T E
The Manager user name and password control access to both the CLI and the
Web browser management interfaces for the access point. You are prompted
to supply the user name and password every time you try to access the access
point through either of these interfaces.
If You Lose the Password
If you lose the password, you can reset it by pressing the Clear button on the
back of the access point for more than one second. This action resets the
password to the factory default settings for all of the access point's interfaces.
For details on resetting configuration files, see
Resets" on page A-1

tion Files tab. Then click the Reset to Factory Default [Reset] button
in the Reset Configuration area.
Reboot the AP:
Click Management > System Maintenance and select the Reboot tab.
Then click the Reboot the Access Point [Reboot] button.

Configuration Guide and see
Setting SNMP Community Names
You can manage the access point from a network management station running
a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management application
such as ProCurve Manager.
The access point SNMP agent supports SNMP versions 1 and 2c. Management
access from SNMP v1 or v2c stations is controlled by community names. To
communicate with the access point, an SNMP v1 or v2c management station
must first submit a valid community name for authentication. The default
community names are "public" for read-only access and "private" for read/
write access. If you intend to support SNMP v1 or v2c managers, it is recom-
mended that you change the default community names to prevent unautho-
rized access. For SNMP parameter details, see
Parameters" on page 5-26
