V-M200 port 1800 connections / Debug session login?

Hi,

 

I'm using a V-M200 access point with firmware 5.4.1.1-01-11416 and so far it's been working fine. But there's one issue I discovered recently: The log of my firewall (IpCop v2.1.2) is flooded with periodical attempts once a minute by the access point to connect to port 1800 on the wireless gateway ip address of the firewall. The source port is 32768. I use just a basic wireless setup with static ip addresses and without VLAN, WDS, CDP, LLDP, Radius, 802.1x, SNMP, etc.
The only obvious services I use are SNTP time synchronization and bridge STP on untagged ports, but disabling these services did not solve this issue. Does anyone have a clue what might cause these connections?

 

When trying to find any useful information on this issue in the system log/tools section myself, I've stumbled upon the "Start debug session" function in the system tools section. After running a debug session, the system log indicates that this starts a local ssh server which is listening on port 22.  Though I was able to connect to the device via ssh, I couldn't login due to missing ssh username/password. As there is no information about this in the manual, I've tried various login combinations (admin/mypassword, admin/admin, admin/empty, root/mypassword, root/root, root/empty, etc.) but none of them did work. The user "admin" with which I login to the web interface doesn't seem to be a vaild user for ssh access as the log states "illegal user admin from [ipaddress]". So I guess it has to be root or something completely different. Anyone knows how to login to the debug session?

 

Best regards

Hi there,

 

You may trying the following to resolve your login issue.

 

1. backup the configuration.

2. reset to factory default.

3. now login with admin/admin user name & password.

4. clear the log entries

4. update the latest software as it has many fixes and monitor it for further issues.

 

refer to HP V-M200 802.11n Access Point Quickstart guide for more info:

Hello ir0nman,

Have you solved the issue on port 1800?  I've been handed the same product which i am recycling now and i'm running on the same issue as yours re port 1800 flooding my firewall.  Can't find any solution on the net even from HP website.

Regards,

Carlo
