elogd [-r pwd] [-w pwd] [-a pwd] [-l logbook] with : -r
create/overwrite read password in config file -w create/overwrite write password in config file -a create/overwrite administrative password in config file -l specify logbook for -r and -w commands
To set a password, obtain a command prompt and make the working directory
the directory where ELOG was installed. By default this will be
C:\Program Files\ELOG on a Windows system.
To set a "write" password use the
C:\Program Files\Network\Web\ELOG>elogd -w APassword -l sysadmin Password added to logbook "sysadmin".
The above command would set the write password for the sysadmin logbook
APassword. You must specify the logbook with the
-l option or you will see the message
"Must specify a lookbook via the -l parameter." The password will be
stored in the
elogd.cfg file in encrypted form.
There will be a
Write Password = line placed in the
file that contains the password you entered, but the password will
be in an encrypted form.
The next time you try writing an entry to the logbook, you will be
prompted to enter the password to obtain write access.
To set a "read" password, e.g. one that allows someone to view log
entries, but not edit or create them, you can use the
to the elogd command.
C:\Program Files\Network\Web\ELOG>elogd -r AnotherPassword -l sysadmin Password added to logbook "sysadmin".
The above command would set the "read" password to be
Read Password = entry would be
When you've set the "read" password as above, when you see a username/password prompt when attempting to access the logbook, the username field can be left blank. The "read" password should be placed in the password field.
You should be aware that unless you are using HTTPS rather than HTTP, there is the potential for someone to "sniff" network traffic and learn the passwords used for ELOG. See ELOG SSL Configuration for information on configuring ELOG to use HTTPS rather than HTTP.
