Changing the Password in Bridge-IT, Genie & Merlin Codecs


The default password for the Java Toolbox web-GUI is password.

The password must be entered to use the web-GUI and Tieline highly recommends changing the default password as soon as possible to protect your codec from being tampered with during live broadcasts. If you forget the password for the Java Toolbox web-GUI then you can always navigate to the WebGUI screen to view the current password and change it.


Creating a New Password

The authentication login password can be changed at any time using the Bridge-IT codec keypad and screen. Note that passwords are case sensitive:

  1. Press the HOME button on the codec to return to the Home screen. 
  2. Use the navigation buttons to select Settings and press the OK button (Note: Settings is named "Config" in firmware v1.xx.xx).
  3. Use the navigation button to navigate down to WebGUI and press the OK button.
  4. Select Password and press OK.

Use the KEYPAD to enter a new password and press the OK button to save the new setting (Note: there is no character limit for passwords).
