    I am running Plesk 9.x in ubuntu with a firewall. The default administrator username is admin. How can this be changed?

    I can restrict access to my IP, but it is not static.

    What is the reason for changing admin username? Basically it is impossible.

    A security feature. It would make it harder to guess the password

    In this case I suggest you use much more secure Plesk 10.x version where admin's password is encrypted and a lot of other security aspects have been improved.
