PBX Disable Strong Password


#1

When I Disable Strong Passwords in the PBX General Settings, it does not appear to change the User Password Rules in the Extension Settings (requiring 2 different character types). Is there any way to change the User Password rules to enable digit only passwords?

Disabling password complexity is not a good idea when it comes to SIP/VOIP in general.
We had a customer who set his passwords to match his extension numbers and guess what happened?

I would make the passwords as long and as complex as you can and don’t make anything simple as if your PBX is open to the internet the likelihood of someone hacking the system or an extension(s) increases significantly.
