how to set web login Username and password HP 2920 Switch

hi everyone 

 

i have a little strange trouble on 2920 switch, actually i was trying to set username and password on web login (GUI) however i'm unable to set username and password on web login. 

however i configure 

WLAN-1st-Floor-SW(config)# password manager user-name admin plaintext
PASSWORD-STR Set password
WLAN-1st-Floor-SW(config)# password manager user-name admin plaintext w12k_p@ss
DHCP-based image file download from a TFTP server is disabled
when an operator or manager password is set.
DHCP-based config file download from a TFTP server is disabled
when an operator or manager password is set.
The TFTP Server is disabled when an operator or manager password
is set.
Autorun is disabled when an operator or manager password is set.
WLAN-1st-Floor-SW(config)#

 

but when i ssh it ask me username and password to let in but when i go to web browser it do not ask me any username and password, it directly allow me to enter without any authentication. 

how can i set username and password on both ssh and web gui 

thanks. 

hope to hear soon 

 

regard

You have only set the password for the manager level user, so everyone still has read (operator) access to the switch. But they should not be able to change any settings in the GUI. If you want to limit read-only access, use the 'password operator' command

A few settings that I included:

May not ALL be related to the Web Login/Username - but mine works :)

ftp server enable

 

telnet server enable

ip http acl 2000

user-group system

user-group interface

#

local-user username

password simple password

authorization-attribute level 3

service-type telnet

ssh server enable

sftp server enable

user-interface aux 0

user-interface vty 0 1

user-interface vty 2 15

set authentication password simple password

 

NOW - a question for all YOU good people :)

Where can I find a reference Manual on the Web Interface Screens - I have searched ALL of the HP Support Sites and nowhere have I been able to find a Reference File on what is available for Operating/Managing/Monitoring a Switch through the Web Interface?
