Changing the VPN & Firewall Password

MacStadium provides the initial configuration of your firewall device, including a username and an initial password listed in your IP Plan. You use these credentials to connect to your MacStadium cloud via VPN and to log in to the Cisco ASDM-IDM management interface of your firewall device.

For security reasons, you might want to change this password. You can do this at any time.

Change the password

  1. Verify that you're logged in to your firewall.
  2. Click Configuration.
  1. Select Device Management.
  2. Select Users/AAA > User Accounts.
  3. Select the username that you use to log in to Cisco ASDM-IDM and click Edit.

IMPORTANT: Do not edit the passwords for the enable and admin users. They are reserved for maintenance and support by the MacStadium team.

  1. On the Identity screen, select the Change user password checkbox, set your new password, confirm it, and click OK.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, click Apply.

Next steps

  • Update any scripts, documents or connection settings with your latest password.
  • From the Device Management > Users/AAA > User Accounts interface, manage your team's access to your cloud and the firewall by adding more users with specific privilege levels.
