ignore user-password value under CAR 4.0

Hi All,

One of our NAS server, is using a default string for User-Password attribute value in the event that no password is set by the user in PAP authentication mode.

How can we ignore that value or set it to Null under CAR in order to use the AllowNullPassword Feature?

Please note that under CHAP Authentication mode the NAS Server does not modify CHAP-Password value so, if not set by user, AllowNullPassword works fine.


Re: ignore user-password value under CAR 4.0

To grant administrative privileges to users, you must first log onto CAR using admin as the initial user name and password. Log onto CAR using this user name and password to grant CAR administrator rights to user(s) for the first time. This user ID and password will only work when there are no CAR administrators configured in the system. Once one or more users have been granted administrator rights, this initial logon (admin, admin) will be disabled. At this point, only CAR administrators (users who have been granted administrator rights initially using admin, admin, can grant CAR administrator rights to other users.

This URl should help you:
