If you need to reset the password for your Epson printer's "EpsonNet" configuration interface, you can do so from within the interface. If you remember your password, you can simply enter the interface and change the password. If you have forgotten your EpsonNet password, you must first reset your printer to its default settings to clear the existing password.
