You have to setup various parameters during the installation process to complete IPCop's initial configuration.

Warning

If you cancel out of the initial configuration before setting the 'root' password you will not be able to log in as 'root' to complete setup. In this case, you will have to restart the installation process.

You can return later and execute the setup command at a console, provided you can login as 'root'.
