Wireless Console port logon issues

I have a

AIR-AP1242AG-A-K9

When I connect my console cable to the Access point it puts me direclty into

ap1.ciscow>

versus the username prompt.

I dont have the command 'login local' or 'login' like a switch or router does for vty/con/aux lines so just trying to find out how I can point line con 0 port of the wireless access point to use the local username database configured on the access point itself.

Any Ideas?

Hi Glen,

try aaa authorization console in config mode to add the radius und/or tacacs authorization to the console port globally!

Best regards,

Re: Wireless Console port logon issues

Hi Glen,

i have this running on a 1242AG with 12.3(8)JA2 and this setup is valid since 12.2.

username admin privilege 15 password 7 xxxxxxxxx

line con 0

line vty 0 4

transport preferred telnet

line vty 5 15

And im prompted a login screen.

This is the link to the command reference Guide for the AP. There are only the AP specific commands availiable. Also a list of non AP specific commands.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps430/products_command_reference_book09186a00804e7952.html

For the rest (non AP-specific) try this one here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5187/prod_command_reference_list.html

I hope that helps.

Best regards,

Frank

Btw, did you setup TACACS or RADIUS login? Then login might not be availiable.

Frank,

Thanks for responding, TACACS is setup yes, but that is for wireless client logons. I wonder if that's part of my issue. I'll provide you with my full config script for you to review and let me know what you think.

Re: Wireless Console port logon issues

The only way you're going to get the login to the local database, by default, is to add the login local on the con 0 like you would a router or swtich. The other thing you can do is type "login" at the > prompt and login that way.

Re: Wireless Console port logon issues

I asked our guy onsite if he used the login command and he said he did. Also the login, and login local are not options on the line con 0 or vty.

Hi Glen,

sorry for the delay. Damn weekend.

;-)

Your config looks pretty good.

Username is defined, the tty and the local login (aaa authorization exec default local).

Hmmm, very strange.

Maybe you have configured the users wirelessadmin and clientadmin in the tacacs server?

Please let me know.

Best regards,

Frank

Re: Wireless Console port logon issues

No problem at all Frank. Yea the wirelessadmin and clientadmin are configured locally. RADIUS is configured on the local wireless device. We have no external database for authenticating users. I think this is a user onsite that may be using the wrong commands to prompt them for username. I will update once I have him go back onsite and see if he can use the 'login' command to prompt him for username.

ap1.wireless>

At this point he has to know the Enable password to get in.

So I added the following lines and now it prompts him for username password.

line con 0

privilege level 15

login authentication default

aaa authentication login default local

My question now is, why do I need to have level 15? IF I remove it he only gets level 7 access and that's it.
