Chapter 3. Configuration

Currently, a user’s privilege can be one of three values: DISABLED,GUEST, orADMIN. ADISABLED account behaves as expected, and effectively disables all access while preserving account information. AGUEST account allows alarm database access and autonomous messages, but no user database access. AnADMIN account is a guest account with user database access.

Any time the MX2800 STS-1configuration is saved to FLASH, the TL1 user database is saved as well. The user database is also saved (as required) when any TL1 session is close (i.e., via a TL1‘CANC-USER’request).

Before using CONFIG TRANSFER, the MX2800STS-1should have a valid IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway (if required), and should be connected to an Ethernet network.
