Needing to give a Noob access to shut/no shut a port

Unanswered Question
Jun 29th, 2012

I need to give a non-technical person the ability to disconnect remote access into his network. Short of putting a big red flag on the cable for him to unplug; how about setting up views on the router in question, turning on https, and in his view allow only access to the one port through https?

Any other ideas? Is there an API available that we could right our own inhouse web page with a big-a$$ slider switch for on/off access to this network?

TIA for any other ideas.

BTW, just pulling the cable does seem like the best route for this....


I have this problem too.

You got my brain churning with this one. You could probably do it with Perl, Expect, EEM/TcL, even SNMP. Since your talking website intergration Perl might be the easiest. I'll look through my script respository...
