Record your new password and save it in a secure place for reference later. 2. After the initial Alibi loading window, the initial setup Wizard screen will appear. The Setup Wizard can assist you in making important configuration settings in NVR. Click Next button on the Wizard window to open the Login window. NOTE The configuration settings presented in the setup Wizard can also be made and changed using the Menu system. See the ALI-NVR3004P, ALI-NVR3008P Embedded Network Video Recorder User Manual provided on CD with your system for more information. 4. 3. 3 Click the Next button to open the date and time settings window. Enter the admin password in the appropriate field. To do that, click inside the Admin Password field to open the virtual keyboard.
