What device password should I use for TCP connection?

Postby Chicodog » Thu Oct 22, 2020 3:34 pm

Hello,
I'm trying to make a TCP connection to the my EVL-4. According to the EnvisalinkTPI-ADEMCO-1-03.pdf document the "The password is the same password used to log into the Envisalink's local page". I can successfully log in to the Envisalink local page with "local ip address":80.

When I try to make a TCP connection per section 2.0 of the document with "local ip address":4025 I get the "Login" prompt, but when I try to use the device password of "user" it returns "FAILED".

Can someone point me to what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

It is the same password. Are you trying to do this interactively? If so it may not work. There are short timeouts in the login process as it is meant to be accessed by a machine. Also make sure you are useing a raw TCP socket, not something like TELNET.

GrandWizard:

Thanks for your help. I had been trying to hit the ip address and manually input the password by using command terminal. With your comments I was able to figure out that I needed to use a TCP socket opening program. I used "Ncat <ip_address>:4025" and it responded with "login" like from the command terminal but this time it took my password "user" and took me right in so I could see the reporting traffic.

Thanks again!
