Resetting the Administrator's password
Posted by Adrien de Croy (Import) on 11 January 2005 09:12 AM

If you forget the password for the administrator account and need to recover access to WinGate, you can remove the administrator by doing the following.

  • Stop the WinGate Engine from the system tray (by right clicking it and selecting stop) then open the registry editor.
  • Find: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Qbik Software\WinGate\UserDatabase\administrator
  • Delete the data for the Password value and restart the WinGate engine. Open Gatekeeper and log in as administrator with a blank password.

We do not recommend running WinGate without an Administrator password. To set a new Administrator password:

  • Go to the Users tab in GateKeeper
  • Right click the user Administrator and select properties
  • Enter a password in the password field and confirm it
  • admin password
