Outdoor Router Command Line Interface

The outdoor router provides both the Web interface and the command-line interface. You can access the Web interface with a web browser.

The command-line interface (CLI) means interacting with the router system where the user issues command to the router system in the form of command lines. Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol to access the router’s command-line interface.

Username: The default terminal username is “root”.
Password: Same as the router password. For security reasons, the password is not echoed to the screen; it does show up when you type it. Just type the router and press “Enter/Return” on the keyboard.
