Rigol DS1054Z Password Login Problem *Solved*

I use the Rigol DS1054Z as my benchtop oscilloscope now since a few years (the one in my title image), and I am rather happy with it. However, one thing never worked for me (but is of utterly low importance – it was just nagging me): You can access a (very) few scope functions via the web interface when opening http://[IP of the scope]. The network settings section is password protected, and according to e.g. this post on EEVblog the user “rigollan” with password “111111” should work. It never worked for me. Other posts claim that “test” or even “blah” is the correct username, password “111111”. Did not work for me either. This finally worked:

  • Go to http://[IP of the scope]
  • Go to “Security”
  • Enter both as old and new password “111111” and confirm –> Success message appears
  • Now I can log in with any user with four or less letters, among them “test” and “blah”, but also “a” or “1234” works!

  1. Hello Hauke,

    thank you for your tip how to overcome that Rigol access stopper.

    It worked for my Rigol MSO2072A in right the same way.

    Best regards, Thomas

  2. Hi Thomas.

    Hello from Brazil.
    I’m using Rigol DS1202Z-E Oscilloscope and I’ve got the same password issue on the webpage service.
    But, I figured out that to access before you change the password, you have just to leave the “user” in blank (that’s it, type nothing) and type the password “111111”.

    I hope this can help other users.

    What an weird and unsafe thing… 🙁

  3. Default login “admin” and password “rigol”.
    It works for my Rigol MSO5074, hope it will help.

    1. Hi Darius,
      thanks for the comment. However, for me it does not work (DS1054Z, currently on firmware) – while my above method is still just fine.
      Cheers, Hauke
