It’s been quiet for a while and many things have changed these few months. I have been involved and experiencing new flavor of networking, which is Huawei platform. Normally, no matter what vendors you are using, below basic setting are always required…like hostname, enable remote access with some restriction, new username for management and time. So let start from very basic of configuring those setting.
ssh authentication-type default password
ssh user networkadmin
ssh user networkadmin authentication-type password
ssh user networkadmin service-type all
Restrict SSH with ACL
acl name SSH 3000
rule 10 permit ip source 192.168.1.10 0
rule 20 permit ip source 192.168.20.0 0.0.0.255
rule 30 permit ip source 172.16.0.0 0.0.0.63
rule 255 deny ip
ssh server acl 3000
Create new user
local-user networkadmin password irreversible-cipher ##passwordhere
local-user networkadmin privilege level 3
local-user networkadmin service-type ssh
<Router-1> clock datetime 13:00:00 2018-04-29
Enter system view, return user view with Ctrl+Z.
[Router-1] clock timezone Asia/Phnom_Penh add 07:00:00
Or you can configure router to sync time with NTP server by using below sample command.
ntp-service unicast-server 10.10.0.1 source-interface MEth0/0/1
That’s it for some basic configuration on Huawei switch or router.
