Setting Up - Passwords and Logging in
#1
Video 
Hi,

I'm doing a new install running OP2 on a Pi 3B+ with Moitessier HAT.  Have followed instructions to get  OP2 installed.  At one point I changed the SSID and gave it a new password.   

I now have the basic network system running but cannot login.  The SSID page is  back to "openplotter" but default password 12345678 doesn't work. The whole section is greyed out. How can I edit it again and save it permanently?

Meanwhile, on a tablet, using VNC, I can see 10.10.10.1 and the login screen appears but again the password I saved for this connection - it has worked once before, is nolonger working.  Again can this be reset?

A third question.  In Open Plotter,  Networks, there are two icons, one page and pen and the right hand one being a micro SD card. I can guess what they mean but I'd be grateful for clarification of what actually happens.

I'd be very grateful for help with the above questions.

Did you read https://openplotter.readthedocs.io/en/la...k_app.html?
The pen is the edit icon. The right side remains gray until you commit the settings on the left side with the edit button.
The basic network settings are saved locally.
Now the right side is no longer grayed out. Edit the settings on the right side and save them (SD card icon).
Special network settings are saved locally. Local settings files are copied to the system area.
The Pi will reboot with the new settings.
(If you want to know your WLAN password, look in the system conf file "/etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf").

Many thanks I'll give that a go.
