    1. Select Set manager password or Set operator password. You will then be prompted with Enter new password.

    2. Type a password of up to 64 ASCII characters with no spaces, and press Enter. (Remember that passwords are case-sensitive.)

    3. When prompted with Enter new password again, retype the new password and press Enter.
