In this configuration example, the physical attributes, terminal attributes, user level, authentication mode, and password are configured for the console user interface. After the configuration is complete, you can log in to the device through the console port in password authentication mode.
To initialize the configurations of a new device or locally maintain the device, log in to the device through the console user interface. You can configure attributes for the console user interface based on use and security requirements.
The configuration roadmap is as follows:
Configure physical attributes for the console user interface.
Configure terminal attributes for the console user interface.
Set a user level.
Set an authentication mode and password.
The user name and password do not have default values. Other parameters have default values, which are recommended.
To complete the configuration, you need the following data:
Transmission rate of a connection: 4800 bit/s
Flow control mode: none
Timeout period of an idle connection: 30 minutes
Number of rows displayed on a terminal screen: 30
Buffer size for historical commands: 20
User level: 15
Authentication mode: password authentication
