    Hello, I just noticed the other day that you can change your password to make your ssh more safer. You can manual set your own password, there are root and mobile password. Does anyone know what mobile password changes. I know root password is the password to your iphone on ssh username: Root and password: Alpine but i dont know what mobile is.

    Heres the article i followed
    Code:
    http://iphoneoverdose.com/2008/how-to-change-the-default-alpine-ssh-password-on-your-iphone/
    can someone explain what they mean.

    Cheers

    user: root
    password: alpine

    user: mobile
    password: dottie

    these are default passwords.
    ssh [email protected]<iphone IP> means you access as root user level, the highest level.
    ssh [email protected]<iphone IP> means you access as mobile user, you can't see root part.

    The complete sequence from mobile terminal looks like this:

    su root (when mobile terminal is started, you are mobile user, this command is to login as root user)
    password: alpine
    passwd
    new password:<new password to be typed in>
    new password:<new password to be typed in the second time>

    I kept getting a 'Sorry' error when I tried to change PW.
    'su root' solved it...Thanks

    I am trying this but when it asks for password, i type it in but alpine doesn't display when I type it in. Nothing happens when I type, I then hit return and get 'su: incorrect password'.

    whats wrong?

    If it doesn't accept "alpine" as password after you type su root, this means the root password has been changed.

    Unix-based terminals generally do not show you the characters as you type in the password, for security reasons. Don't worry, it's still counting whatever you type in. Just make sure you type in "alpine" exactly and it should let you in.
