When I try to log on to my Vu+duo2 using dcc I use 'root' as the username and leave the password blank. This seems to allow mt connect upload_2017-2-14_14-5-4.png However it won't let me use ftp without a password. I've tried to use the 'passwd' command in Telnet to create a password but when I go into Telnet it again asks for a user and password and it wont let me enter the 'passwd' command - it just keeps saying login failed - upload_2017-2-14_14-9-41.png Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

DCC does not work well with some images, try using VUCC instead.

I've tried VUCC but can't get it to work. Everytime I try it I get this - upload_2017-2-14_15-54-29.png I've also tried to get in using Filezilla but I just can't get past the request for a password.

Open PLI I think.

Tried using VUCC but it keeps throwing up an Access Violation. By the way I think the image on my box is Open PLI if that helps

Tried using passive ftp - no difference. Just can get past the fact that the box login is 'root' with no password. Every ftp client I've tried needs a password.And when I try to set a new password using Telnet and the 'passwd' command once again I can't login in Telnet without a password. It seems to be a fairly common issue on vu boxes as many come set up without a password. The primary solution seems to be the Telnet option above but I can't get it to work.

Thanks Ten Below, I used the File Explorer plugin and the guidance in the link you put up and I was able to reset the password.
