#                           
[Eudemon200E]user-manage user
[Eudemon200E-localuser-user01] password Admin@123
#

Root Cause
1. When client configures IE proxy, the http port is changed.
2. Eudemon200E can only support web authentication when the destination port of the http packets is TCP 80

In latest version, Eudemon200E can only support web authentication which http port is TCP 80
