    Managing CTPView Users (CTPView Server Menu)

    You can view currently active shell account users, and add or delete administrator shell accounts. Shell accounts provide access to the CTPView server by means of an SSH application.

    Before you begin, log in to the CTPView server and access the CTPView Configuration Menu. See Accessing the CTPView Server Configuration Menu (CTPView Server Menu).

    To manage user passwords, you must first access the User Management Menu:

    1. From the CTPView Configuration Menu, select 1) Security Profile.
    2. Select 1) User Management.

      The User Management Menu is displayed.

    Note: The Security Profile Configuration Menu has an idle timeout period of 10 minutes. If no action is performed for 10 minutes, the user is logged out of the Security Profile Configuration Menu, and is brought back to the Node Operations Menu.

    Monitoring CTPView Users (CTPView Server Menu)

    To display all CTPView users that are currently logged in to the server through SSH:

    • From the User Management Menu, select 1) List users currently logged on.

    Only users logged in to the server through a secure shell (not through the CTPView GUI) are listed. The table lists the username, whether the user logged in remotely or locally, the time the session began, and the user’s IP address. Local user connections are indicated by tty; remote SSH connections are indicated by pts.

    Listing Admin Shell Accounts (CTPView Server Menu)

    You use a shell account to access the CTPView server with an SSH application.

    To list all administrator shell accounts:

    • From the User Management Menu, select 2) List admin shell accounts.

    The usernames for the shell accounts are listed according to their classification, Administrator or User.

    Adding Admin Shell Accounts (CTPView Server Menu)

    To add an administrator shell account:

    1. From the User Management Menu, select 3) Add admin shell accounts.
    2. Enter the username for the account.

      Only alphanumeric characters, underscores, and periods are allowed in a username.

    3. Enter the appropriate number to classify the user as an Administrator or User.
    4. Enter a new password for the user.

      The password requirements are displayed to assist you in choosing an appropriate password.

    Starting with CTPOS Release 7.1R1, to support the U.S. Department of Defense Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) requirements, when the security level of the CTP Series platforms is set as high, the CLI menu is accessible after a user in JITC mode logs in to the device. Until Release 7.0R1, for shell account users (System Administrator and Auditor users), the shell prompt was displayed after logging in and for menu users (CTP Administrator and Query-Only users), the CLI menu was accessible after logging in for all security levels.

    Deleting Admin Shell Accounts (CTPView Server Menu)

    To delete an administrator shell account:

    1. From the User Management Menu, select 4) Delete admin shell accounts.
    2. Enter the username for the account.
