    How to increase security in the D6686 and how to default the D6686 to factory settings.

    The D6686 may be vulnerable to becoming inoperative if a telnet session is left open by any means not intended by its owner. Enabling a password for Telnet sessions will prevent an internet attacker from attempting to utilize the second available tunnel. 

    • Prerequisites:
      • The PC used to make configuration changes must reside on the same subnet as the D6686.

    How to add a password to protect the telnet session:

    • Note: When Telnet authentication is disabled the unit short name (default: D6686) will display, if a  short name has not been programmed, the symbol [ > ] will display.
    • If ‘login’: displays this indicates the Telnet password has been enabled and will be required to access telnet.
    1. Open a command prompt and enter [telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] (where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is IP Address of the device) and press Enter.
    2. D6686> displays, type [en] and press Enter.
    3. D6686(enable)# displays, type [conf] and press Enter.
    4. D6686(config)# displays, type [cli] and press Enter.
    5. D6686(config-cli)# displays, type [login password] followed by [your new telnet password] and press Enter.
      1. Note: the password entered in step 5 will be required for all future telnet sessions in the D6686.
    6. D6686(config-cli)# displays, type [telnet] and press Enter.
    7. D6686(config-cli-telnet)# displays, type [authentication enable] and press Enter.
    8. D6686(config-cli-telnet)# displays, type [write] and press Enter to save the above changes.

    How to remove the password from the telnet session:

    1. Open a command prompt and enter [telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] (Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is IP Address of the device) and press Enter.
    2. D6686 login: displays, enter the default user name [admin].
    3. Password: displays, enter the Telnet password and press Enter.
