1. Log in to the AC through the console port or Telnet.
2. Configure the management IP address.
[AC6605] vlan 10
[AC6605-vlan10] quit
[AC6605] interface Vlanif 10 // Configure VLANIF 10 as the management interface.
[AC6605-Vlanif10] ip address 192.168.200.161 24 //Configure the IP address of the web platform.
[AC6605-Vlanif10] quit
[AC6605] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 //GE0/0/1 is the number of the physical interface that connects the AC and PC using the web platform to log in to the AC. Set this parameter based on network situations. 
[AC6605-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] port link-type trunk
[AC6605-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] port trunk allow-pass vlan 10
[AC6605-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit

[huawei-GigabitEthernet 1/0/0] quit
[huawei]


Step 3: Configure the login account and password of Telnet server.
[huawei] aaa
[huawei-aaa] local-user huawei password irreversible-cipher %^%#6W-mT:ZGe)0B*rMm,@#$LEyI;m_bQibe=46k.,#x$vk0EyLL%^%# //Create a local user, and set the user name to huawei and password to Hello@123.[huawei-aaa] local-user huawei privilege level 3 //3. Set the priority of the local user huawei to 3.
[huawei-aaa] local-user huawei service-type telnet //Set the service type to Telnet.
[huawei-aaa] quit
[huawei]

Step 4: Configure the verification mode of the user interface.
[huawei] user-interface vty 0 4 //Enter the user interface view of VTY0 to VTY4.
