IP of Dreambox :- Whatever your IP, Your Dreambox uses to access the Internet (Usually found in Network settings on Dreambox),If you get the IP address with dreambox display, you need to reboot and box(power off and on again), and let it complete booting up(don't hold the standby button and don't stop it from booting after power off and on again. The IP address won't change in short time.

Username = root | Password = dreambox | These are the default settings input as I have or unless you changed them manually enter what you changed them to.

Enigma1 = Dreambox 500, 600, 7020 Users Click Satellite Receiver (Grey Box - Right Hand Side) then file path should say this :- /var/tuxbox/config/enigma/
