The MAP Gateway uses security certificates to authenticate itself to web browsers. Refer to the Mobile Access Portal Gateway Network and IT Guidance Technical Bulletin (LIT-12012015) for information on installing and using security certificates.
MAP Gateway locks out the user if you make multiple failed login attempts. To unlock the user, power cycle the MAP.
The first time you log in to the MAP Gateway with the default factory credentials, the Change Password and Passphrase web page appears. You must change the Admin password and Wi-Fi passphrase. MAP Gateway passwords must have at least eight characters, at least one digit (0–9), and one upper case letter (A–Z). The Wi-Fi access point passphrase must have at least eight characters, but there are no other restrictions.
Follow these simple rules to add complexity to your password:
- Use a password that is at least eight (8) characters in length (at least eight characters).
- Do not use dictionary words in your password.
- Use uppercase and lowercase letters.
- Use numbers.
- Use symbols such as $, %, &.
If you forget the Admin password, you can reset the MAP Gateway to the factory password that is located in the original Quickstart Guide. For this reason, you should maintain physical security of the Mobile Access Portal Gateway Quick Start Guide (Part No. 24-10737-16) with the passphrase on it to discourage unauthorized attempts to access equipment.
