I finally nutted it out, admin was my username but I put a capital in for a long while trying it out.
Afterall this fuss, once you apply a change it doesn't retain the setting anyway.
FYI, click disable.
Password dialogue pops up - enter details
Confirms changes successful.
Then just go into any other menu items, say Tray Selection, but anything will do and go straight back to printing properties and the banner tab is straight back to 'enabled'.
Crazy waste of time really. I'm going to try the cable instead of this CWIS malarkey.
I should have added, once you are in the CWIS, it states in address bar the site is not secure. But if I could work out password etc required, I'd be typing it into an unsecure site?
Well that worked. I used machine serial number not device number. Semantics I know but this is the problem in itself, nothing is explained very well.
So I get in, work out where to disable the start up page but then I get asked for the 'user name and password' for the IP address.
No further explanation.
Is it the password I just made to get into the CWIS on 192.168? Is the use name the email I used to login to the IP address for CWIS? Is it the password to the network, the router name, ah so many questions and so much time wasted.
Just a few little descriptors next to fields for the processors would do wonders here.
Thanks for the device number tip.
No, I haven't done that and I don't recall seeing that advice anywhere. I still haven't solved the problem yet after all these months.
Ruining the experience with Xerox even though the printer itself is fab. I'm pretty tech competent and yet this task, which should be simple, is ridiculous vague and ambiguous ( to me).
I just want to be clear.
This terrible looking login page, from using IP address has 3 fields.
But there is no way to reset everything to the start state if you've tried.
So one remains stuck in a password lockout.
It's not a good login interface at all I'm afraid.
Instead of 1111, have you tried the device serial number?
