Basic configuration on Huawei router

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.

Configure hostname

sysname iNET9-S6320-30C-SW1

Enable SSH

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
description SSH-White-list
rule 10 permit ip source 0
rule 20 permit ip source
rule 30 permit ip source
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

Configure time

<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 source-interface MEth0/0/1

That’s it for some basic configuration on Huawei switch or router.
