How to log in to the device on AR routers for the first time through a console port

When you log in to the device through the console port, you need to install the terminal access software on the local PC (such as SecureCRT software) and set parameters of the terminal simulation software. After the login succeeds, you can configure the following parameters based on the requirements:
- Set the system date, time and time zone.
- Set the device name and management IP address.
- Set other login modes.
For example, after a user logs in through the console port for the first time, the configuration of remote login through Telnet is as follows:
1. Set the system date, time, and time zone.
clock timezone BJ add 08:00:00
clock datetime 20:10:00 2012-07-26
2. Set the device name and management IP address
[Huawei] sysname Server
[Server] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0
[Server-GigabitEthernet0/0/0] ip address 24
[Server-GigabitEthernet0/0/0] quit
3. Set the level and authentication mode of the Telnet user
[Server] telnet server enable
[Server] user-interface vty 0 4
[Server-ui-vty0-4] user privilege level 15
[Server-ui-vty0-4] authentication-mode aaa
[Server-ui-vty0-4] quit
[Server] aaa
[Server-aaa] local-user admin1234 password irreversible-cipher Helloworld@6789
[Server-aaa] local-user admin1234 privilege level 15
[Server-aaa] local-user admin1234 service-type telnet
[Server-aaa] quit
