3Com Baseline 29XX Switch Password Lameness

Change the admin password on your 3Com Baseline Switch?  Can't login anymore?

Here's what I figured out through a bit of guesswork:  passwords must be 8 characters or less.  The web-based control panel will allow you to enter passwords longer than 8 characters, and will simply truncate your password without warning.

So if you entered as a password: IAmADickensFan

You can login using: IAmADick
