884XA asks for a password when controlling via LAN using Telnet or PuTTY

The 884XA meters actually don't have a user password.  So why is it asking for one?  This is a protection Telnet and other relatively generic LAN communication applications use to eliminate unauthorized connections.

However, if you use a Raw socket connection and the default port address you will not be asked for a password.

Setting up your communication this way (Here is an example using PuTTY), will automatically look at the connection on the port and bypass the need for a password.  You may also have to allow the port access through your firewall.
