Switching from the Web System to the CLI

Switching from the Web System to the CLI


  • The PuTTY software must be loaded, and you can only switch from the web platform to the CLI through the Internet Explorer.

    When you use the Internet Explorer to switch from the web platform to the CLI for the first time, a dialog box will be displayed. In the displayed dialog box, click Download the Telnet client to download the putty.exe file. After downloading the file, click Configure the path in the displayed dialog box and select the downloaded putty.exe file. Then click OK in the displayed dialog box. Click CLI in the lower right corner to switch to the CLI.

  • If the Internet Explorer is used, the security level must be set to Low.

    Open the Internet Explorer, choose Tools > Internet Options > Security. Choose Internet and click Custom level. Click Enable under Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe, Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting*, Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins, and Active scripting. Choose Local intranet and Trusted sites, and set the security levels of both zones to Low. The Internet Explorer 8.0 is used in the preceding example.


    If the CLI cannot be accessed after the security level of the Internet Explorer is set to Low, refresh or restart the Internet Explorer and perform the switching again.

  • When switching from the web platform to the CLI, note the following:
    1. You must log in to the web platform as a user with administrator rights.
    2. The device initiates a Telnet connection with a client and it cannot determine whether the connection is successful.
    3. You cannot switch to the CLI if you log in to the web platform using the URL or based on IP address and port mapping.


  1. Log in to the web system and click CLI in the lower right corner to display the CLI, as shown in Figure 3-1.

    Figure 3-1  Switching to the CLI

    If the Chrome or Firefox browser is used to switch from the web system to the CLI, the browser attempts to invoke the default Telnet client in the Windows OS and display the External Protocol Request dialog box after you click CLI in the lower right corner. Click Launch Application in the External Protocol Request dialog box. The CLI will be displayed.

  2. Enter the configured Telnet user name and password to log in to the router, as shown in Figure 3-2. You can manage and maintain the router on the CLI.

    For details about how to configure the Telnet user name and password, see User Management.
