Local Access Configuration Using CLI Management Overview


Use the CLI management options to configure local access using a console connection, or remote access using Telnet or SSH. A device administrator can connect directly to most security devices using the console port. CLI management settings apply to all device administrators for the security device.

Additionally, to manage a device remotely using Telnet or SSH, the device administrator must use a permitted IP address to initiate a Telnet or SSH connection to the device, and the correct service option must be enabled for the interface that the device administrator connects to on the device. For details on configuring permitted IP addresses, see Restricting Management Connections Using Permitted IPs; for details on configuring service options for a device interface, see the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide.
