This article demonstrates how to enable the “Remote Management Access” for ePMP/PTP 550 (AP/Master).
By default, management access on an AP/Master is only allowed via the Ethernet Interface. We can enable the management access for a wireless interface which will allow us to access the AP/Master from behind the SM/Slave.
There are many ways to enable the “Remote Management Access” including:
- Via the device GUI (Simplest way)
- Using SSH
Method 1: Via the device GUI
Step 1 : Login to the web GUI of the AP/ Master.
Step 2: Navigate to: Configuration → Network → Advanced tab and set the “Management Access” to “Ethernet And Wireless” and save the change as shown below (Reboot not required):
Method 2: Using SSH.
Step 1: Login to the AP/Master via SSH.
Note: You can use any SSH client. For Windows, Putty can be downloaded from https://www.putty.org/
Step 2: Enter the following commands in CLI as shown below:
config set l2WanRemoteAccess 1 config commit
A device reboot is not required to make this change
To set the “Management Access” back to Ethernet only use the following command:
config set l2WanRemoteAccess 0 config commit
