    By default this is disabled on Debian for security. For some reason 3CX ISO enables this and only creates root user (no "admin" user). This leaves system vulnerable to brute force of the root account (as username is well known). There appears to be no account lockout, but if there was it would also make system vulnerable to DoS of root account via it being locked out.
