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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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.
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.
Yup... So there you go:)
For best practice you should disable telnet and http and use ssh and https.
