Enable Telnet password via web interface on 5800 series switch

Enable Telnet password via web interface on 5800 series switch

We have a couple of 5800 switches deployed at a remote location.

We'd like to issue the "user-interface vty 0 15"  and enable the password on it.

 

Telnet is enabled already, but when we try to telnet to it, it let's us know that a password is not set.

 

We can configure nearly everything fine through the web interface, but would like the CLI enable for convenience/speed of doing some work, etc.  We can't find where to set the password for the VTY connection though in the web interface, or if there is a way to issue CLI commands from the web interface.

 

Thanks.

How does your config looks like for these sections?

 

 

super password

 

domain system

 

user-group system

 

local-user <username>>

 

user-interface vty 0 15

 

 

Dont forget to censor any ciphers before posting (by replacing the text with <REMOVED> or such).

Try this:

 

Enter system view   - sy

Enable telnet - telnet server enable

Enter vty interface - user-interface vty 0 15

Enable password - authentication-mode password

Set password (example password is password) - set authentication password cipher password

Set user privilege to high - user privilege level 3
