Required to log in twice to embedded AP (C887VA-W-E-K9)
I recently acquired a C887VA-W-E-K9 router and have been trying to configure it for VDSL & wireless.
I have got as far as a basic configuration, however when I enter service-module wlan-ap 0 session I am prompted to enter a username and password twice before I am dropped into exec mode.
I am connecting to the router via SSH, rather than the console, if that matters.
aaa new-model ... aaa authentication login default local aaa authorization exec default local
username admin privilege 15 secret 5 XXXXX
AP config has the same lines as above.
Since service-module wlan-ap 0 session shows a banner (which I have only configured in the main router config, not within the AP IOS config) I am assuming at this point that the first prompt for username & password is actually for the router, and the second prompt is for the AP?
Is there a way I can simply disable the need to log in at all when I type service-module wlan-ap 0 session, since I would guess this is a EXEC-only command anyway? Logging into the AP when I'm already logged in and exec'd to the router seems like an unnecessary overcomplicated step?
Thanks for that. At initial glance it doesn't seem to have fixed it, though it's hard to tell sometimes because it seems like the integrated wlan IOS "remembers" sessions and lets me in with just one login. Other times, when it's "cold", it doesn't.
Not the end of the world, but annoying. Thanks for your help :)
