Help with "Admin user requires valid username and password" on fms2_console.swf page

Just installed FMS2 on Debian (etch, 2.16.5-1 kernel). When I
connect to localhost:1111/fms2_console.swf and get the infamous XML
output which includes the text, "Admin user requires valid username
and password." The *.xml and *.ini files haven't been touched after
installation. All four daemons (fmsedge, fmsmaster, fmscore,
fmsadmin) are running and listening on the correct ports.
Any tips? (I'm sure this is easy to solve...)

FMIS 4.5 does not accept plain text password. Encrypt=false is no longer supported. See here for more information : bcf-7fed.html#WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d119f2926bcf-7e91
The value for SERVER.ADMIN_PASSWORD needs to be the encrypted string for your password. That should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

  • The server at Mac OS X Server Web Services requires a username and password

    I am running SL Server 10.6.2, wiki works but when a person clicks an attached file in a wiki and then selects "open" they get a login popup with the notification The server at Mac OS X Server Web Services requires a username and password. It doesn't matter what they put into the login/pass it comes back. If they hit cancel then the document opens. If they click save then it saves with no issue. I can type in the admin login/pass of the server and it works. Does this mean the security settings to the location of the files is wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    By the way they are using Internet Explorer 7 when opening these documents.

  • Email send/receive suddenly doesn't work ; can't change email settings as BB phone won't accept valid username and password -- what to do?

    email send/receive suddenly doesn't work (as of September 24th); I can't change email settings (one suggestion from tech) as BB phone won't accept *valid* username and password -- what to do?
    I understand from a support note that if I keep trying my password/username combination, my BB will eventually delete all data!
    I can't understand this. I'm completely lost now. I can't remember what I've done or tried to do. A plethora of usernames and passwords is swimming in my head.
    Thanks for any hints. I have always loved this BB Bold and have never had any trouble with it.

    But the real question is why for the past year did the passwords work and then all of the sudden after this anomaly the disk password doesn't work?  I'm not 100% sure of what my configuration was, but I know that most of the time it required one password -- supervisor, and occasionally it asked for 2 -- disk password as well I believe.  This may have been related to the Password on Restart setting I think -- asking for the disk password on cold vs. warm boot.  But I know both were exactly the same.  But after this incident only the Supervisor password worked.

  • Hp printer requires a username and password

    My HP Deskjet F4583 wireless printer worked wonders with my Windows XP.
    Now we've all upgraded to Windows 7 (very grumpy - everything worked just fine on XP)
    Tried printing through wireless office network (that "I" set up), and suddenly get this:
       "The server requires a username and password.
        THe server says: HP Printer [email protected]"
             followed by the appropriate fields.
    So now what?
    Since when was a username/ password option available - believe me I would have tried to omit it when creating the network - we don't have time to "play" with our gadgets; we just expect them to work with minimum fuss.
    Please help...

    It is not a WPA2-PSK network with a shared key for 802.11 encryption.
    It is a WPA2 network with 802.11 encryption and EAP authentication to a RADIUS server.  It needs the printer supplicant to supply a username and a password.  I own neither the AP nor the RADIUS server for this network, they are owned by the college my child attends.
    There you go.  Need to ask your IT department how to connect because the printer will never connect with a browser authentication.    Also not supported on a Radius server.

  • How do I connect to an SMTP server that requires a username and password?

    I am currently working on a project for university which requires me to send and receive email. I was until this week able to send mail no problem, but now the SMTP server has been upgraded so that each time a mail is sent it requires the username and password.
    Ideally the connection should be made using TLS/SSL, and not use the Authenticator method. I want to pass the username and password directly if possible.
    I've been trying to use the following but have been getting handshake, and other exceptions:
    SMTPSSLTransport smtpSSLtransport = new SMTPSSLTransport(session,
                        new URLName("smtp", smtpHost, port, null-File,
                        "USERNAME", "PASSWORD"));
            smtpSSLtransport.connect(new Socket(smtpHost, port));
            smtpSSLtransport.sendMessage(smtpMessage,                                                     message.getAllRecipients());
            smtpSSLtransport.close();Can anyone correct this piece of code for me or point me in the right direction of what classes and methods I should be using?
    Many thanks in advance,

    I always wonder what misleads people to do things this way.
    Was there some example you saw that suggested that instantiating
    an SMTPSSLTransport was the correct approach? I hope not.
    See the demo program for how to use SMTP
    authentication. If you need to use SSL, see the SSLNOTES.txt
    file for hints on using the "smtps" protocol. also
    illustrates use of SSL, but you'll need to fix a bug in it to use the
    correct property names ("mail.smtps.auth", etc.).

    For the issue you are having, I would recommend trying a different web browser for starters, and if that doesn't help, follow the instructions below from another post with a resolved solution. If those steps don't help, the problem could be your router.

  • Remote DVR Hates Me - Continues To Reject Valid Username And Password

    Hi all,
    I mistakenly posted this message in the programming forum by mistake, so I'm moving it here now (sorry about that):
    For the past few days, I've been unable to login to the Verizon remote DVR from both my iPhone and the web. It had been working fine for months, then all of a sudden, when I try to login, I get the dreaded 'login failed. please try again."
    My Username and Password still work fine for Verizon Central, but for some reason the remote DVR login page won't recognize them. I tried re-registering my username and password, but that didn't work. I don't have any periods (or other weird characters) in my username. And as I mentioned, it had been working fine for months and months. Very frustrating.
    I called tech support. They couldn't help (seemed baffled and ill equipped to solve this type of problem).  The rep told me that Verizon was having some trouble with remote DVR (yet he had NO information about what the problem was or if there was a fix in the works). Is this true, Verizon? Is there an internal issue? He said he was going to connect me to someone who could tell me more. I said great. Then he connects me and I get a recording that says, "you've reached a non-working number in the Verizon system ..." NICE! 
    Is anyone else out here having trouble logging in to their remote DVR?
    One thing I noticed, the login page looks different. There used to be  2 radio buttons: one for ".com" and one for ".net." I don't see those any more. I wonder if that's part of the problem.
    I appreciate any help. Thanks everyone. And again, sorry for the double post.

    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for taking the time to reply.
    TROYH72: Yes, I'm painfully aware that the "" url is for mobile devices. It used to work fine on my iphone, but it no longer does. It constantly rejects my username and password (which are both valid). FYI, that same url used to work from my computer as well. 
    PJL: Thanks for your suggestion. I tried deleting the cookies and clearing the browser cache. No luck. I really think this is a problem on Verizon's end for a couple of reasons:
    1. The login page looks different to me now. As I mentioned, there used to be radio buttons for .com and .net. Those are gone.
    2. I have the same problem logging on from my computer as I do from the iphone. Seems odd.
    3. I can log in to "," and some other Verizon urls, but I can't access my DVR once I'm logged in. The only way I can access my DVR remotely is to log in through ""  and do it the roundabout way. But as I mentioned in a previous post, that's really cumbersome from a mobile device.
    4. Maybe most importantly, the remote DVR used to work perfectly! And now it doesn't work at all on my iphone ("Login failed. Please try again.") And it's wonky from the web. And I haven't changed anything on my end.
    Maybe it's a Mac thing. I'm running Macs as well as an iphone. I know that sometimes, Verizon and Macs don't play nicely together. I'm at a loss. And it doesn't look my Ticket is making any headway.
