The installation has to be completed first on the engineering and finally on the runtime server. If you are not logged in as root user, the password for the root user will be prompted at this point.

In Debian 11, remote connects through PuTTY (SSH) or WinSCP with root login are disabled by default. Therefore, use the additional user login user to establish a connection with WinSCP or PuTTY or to log in to the desktop (GUI). For this, the login name and password are required to enable external access to both the Siveillance Control engineering and runtime server.

  • Debian has been installed.
  • You are logged in as root user.
  • The password for the viewpoint-d11*.deb file has been provided by the Siemens service technician or hotline.
