You can define a _username_ and _password_ for the CDP Server Web Interface before you can begin using the CDP Standard Edition.
{code}#r1soft-setup --user DESIRED_USERNAME --pass DESIRED_PASSWORD{code}
After running you will see output similar to:
{code}# r1soft-setup --user admin --pass r1soft
Server username and password set
The R1Soft CDP Server must be restarted for these changes to take effect
Use '/etc/init.d/cdp-server restart' to restart.{code}
Then restart the CDP server. See [Restarting CDP Server].
