ProcedureHow to Use Passwords

  1. Type your login ID at the Login: prompt.

  2. Type your password at the Password: prompt.

    (To maintain password secrecy, your password is not displayed on your screen when you type it.)

    If your login is successful you will see your system's message of the day (if any) and then your command-line prompt, windowing system, or normal application.
