How to enable the User Manager on the Access Point (AP)

 

 

Introduction

How to enable the User Manager on the Access Point

 

Resolution

 

Enable the User Manager on the access point by creating a list of authorized management systems users.

 

Step 1          Follow the link path to the Security Setup page.

 

Step 2          On the Security Setup page, click User Information.

Step 3          Click Add New User. The User Management window appears.

Step 4          Enter a username and password for the new user.

Step 5          Select the capabilities you want to assign to the new user. Capabilities include:

 

Write—The user can change system settings. When you assign Write capability to a user, the user also automatically receives Admin capability.

SNMP—Designates the username as an SNMP community name. SNMP management stations can use this SNMP community name to perform SNMP operations. The User Manager does not have to be enabled for SNMP communities to operate correctly.

 

Note

Selecting the SNMP check box does not grant SNMP write capability to the user; it only designates the username as an SNMP community name. SNMP operations performed under the username are restricted according to the username's other assigned capabilities.

 

Ident—The user can change the access point's identity settings (IP address and SSID). When you assign Ident capability to a user, the user also automatically receives Write and Admin capabilities.

Firmware—The user can update the access point's firmware. When you assign Firmware capability to a user, the user also automatically receives Write and Admin capabilities.

Admin—The user can view most system screens. To allow the user to view all system screens and make changes to the system, select Write capability.

 

Step 6          Click Apply. The User Management window disappears, and the new user appears in the user list on the User Information page.

Step 7          Click the browser's Back button to return to the Security Setup page. On the Security Setup page, click User Manager. The User Manager Setup page appears.

Step 8          Select User Manager: Enabled to restrict use of the access point management system to users in the user list.

 

Note

You must define a full administrator user—a user with write, identity, and firmware capabilities—before you can enable the user manager.

Use the other settings on the User Manager Setup page to add more restrictions for the management system:

 

Allow Read-Only Browsing without Login—Select yes to allow any user to view the access point's basic screens. Select no to restrict access to all of the access point's screens to only the users in the user list.

Protect Legal Credit Page—Select yes to restrict access to the Legal Credits page to users in the user list. Select no to allow any user to view the Legal Credits page.

 

Step 9          Click OK. You return automatically to the Security Setup page.
