AP GUI Authentication

I would like to know how to change the default username and password for some Cisco AP's that I have.

I know I can do it through the CLI and GUI. But, this is my question. When I do so through the GUI, I am

able to telnet into the AP with the username and password I create. When I go to the GUI, the access level

is 1. Is there something I'm doing wrong that makes it access level 1 instead of 15?

There is a difference, but if you can edit the settings from the GUI then you are good.  Now try to create a user with privilege of 1 and telnet or try to gui and see if its the same.

yes, I've done that in the CLI as well. When I go back to the GUI, it will still take the default credentials.

I did the whole username line you advised.

I can see it in the running config and it works no matter what

settings I put via the GUI. When I go to the Admin Access

portion of the GUI, I select local user list only option for authentication.

I created a read-write user account, equal to the credentials in the CLI.

But for some reason the access level goes to 1.

Re: AP GUI Authentication

Have you tried to enabel secure http server so you can https to the AP?

ip http secure-server

Here is a doc for configuring ssh:

I went ahead and enabled the http secure-server and still had the level 1 access.

Does it really matter the difference in levels 1 or 15? I go into the GUI and am

able to edit the settings. I just don't understand why it's level 1 instead of 15.

Re: AP GUI Authentication

The level_1 account goes in, but when I try to edit anything through the GUI it asks me for the Level_15 username and password. So I'm thinking putting in the level 15 UN and Pass overrides the level 1 prompt.

Re: AP GUI Authentication

Yup... So there you go:)

For best practice you should disable telnet and http and use ssh and https.
