Private Node Server Console

In addition to the web interface (Control Panel), Private Node Server has a console GUI that mirrors some functions of the web interface.

Use the arrow keys to navigate through the menu, Enter to run a command, and Esc to exit the current menu. Additionally, the IP address and web interface URL of your private node are displayed at the top of the menu.

The current values are displayed in the square brackets in prompts. To leave the current value unchanged, press Enter to skip the input. However, you need to enter the value for Nameserver.

Reset Web Interface Password

Access to the private node’s web interface (Control Panel) is password-protected. If you forgot the password, you can reset it from the console by using the Reset Private Node Web Console Password to Default (in version 2.1) or Configuration > Reset Web Password to Default (in versions up to 1.6.3) menu command.

The default login and password are:

insiteadm / 1nSitePa$$ in Private Node Server 2.0 and later

admin / password in earlier versions

After you reset the password, you can log in to the web interface and set a new password in Manage InSite Location > Change Web Password.
