How to configure the web login IP address of WLAN devices

9

Configure the web login IP address of WLAN devices as follows:
For devices with management network ports, you are advised to directly configure an IP address for the management network port. The following command output is an example for configuring the IP address of the VLANIF 1 interface.
[Huawei] interface vlanif 1
[Huawei-Vlanif1] ip address 172.16.1.1 24
[Huawei-Vlanif1] quit
[Huawei] quit
Ensure that the PC can ping the WLAN devices.

What are the default web login IP address and port number of WLAN devices
The default web login IP address and port number of WLAN devices are as follows: - For ACs: The IP address 169.254.1.1 and subnet mask 255.255.0.0 have been configured on MEth0/0/1 of the AC6605 and ACU2 before delivery. The IP address 169.254.1.1 and subnet mask 255.255.0.0 have been configured on the VLANIF 1 interface of the AC6005 before delivery. Interfaces GE0/0/1 to GE0/0/8 of the AC6005 have been added to VLAN 1 by default. In addition, HTTP and HTTPS services (disabled on V200R003 and earlier versions) of the AC have been configured before delivery. The default port number of the HTTP service is 80, and the HTTPS service 443. - For Fat APs: The IP address 169.254.1.1 and subnet mask 255.255.0.0 have been configured on the VLANIF 1 interface of the AP before delivery. GE0/0/0 has been added to VLAN 1 by default. In addition, HTTP and HTTPS services (disabled on V200R003 and earlier versions) of the AP have been configured before delivery. The default port number of the HTTP service is 80, and the HTTPS service 443.

IP addresses conflict in the address pool of a WLAN device
An IP address conflict occurs when two STAs on a LAN are allocated the same IP address. For example, a STA's IP address has been released using a Release packet or the reset ip pool command, or because the lease has expired for 3 days. However, the AC does not notify the STA that the IP address has been released. The AC then allocates this IP address to another STA. This STA pings the IP address and receives a reply, so it sends a Decline packet to the AC. The AC sets this IP address to conflicted state. You can run the reset ip pool { interface pool-name | name ip-pool-name } { start-ip-address [ end-ip-address ] | conflict } command to release a conflicting IP address.

How to change the web password of WLAN devices
To change the web password of WLAN devices, perform the following steps: If the web login password is lost or you want to change the existing web login password, you can log in to the device using other methods, such as the console port or Telnet, and set the password again. 1. Log in to the device using other methods, such as the console port. 2. Change the user password. The following command output is an example that sets the user name to huawei and the new password to Huawei@123 in AAA authentication: [Huawei] aaa [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei password irreversible-cipher Huawei@123 [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei service-type http //Set the access type of huawei to HTTP. [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei privilege level 15

How to enable the web function on WLAN devices
The procedure for enabling the web function on WLAN devices is similar. The AC is used as an example:
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
3. Enable the HTTP or HTTPS service.
   - Enable the HTTP service.
   [AC6605] http server enable //The HTTP service is enabled by default.
   - Enable the HTTPS service.
   [AC6605] http secure-server enable //The HTTPS service is enabled by default.
4. Configure the web platform users.
[AC6605] aaa
[AC6605-aaa] local-user admin password irreversible-cipher Helloworld@6789
[AC6605-aaa] local-user admin privilege level 15
[AC6605-aaa] local-user admin service-type http
[AC6605-aaa] quit
5. Log in to the web platform.
Open the web browser on your PC, and enter http://192.168.200.161 (IP address configured in Step 2) in the address box. Press Enter. The web platform login page is displayed.
