TitleWhy I am unable to log into WiNG device using connect over MINT?
Question
  • When using connect (to hostname) access device responds with "Login incorrect" prompt even though credentials are correct.
Environment
  • All Summit WM3000 Series Controllers
  • ExtremeWiNG Controllers
  • WirelessWiNG Controllers
  • ExtremeWiNG Access Points
  • WirelessWiNG Acess Points
  • WiNG 5+ Software
Answer
When configuring management policy you may notice various access types and roles for every user account

As WiNG uses telnet functions to perform its connect (to-hostname) command it is directly affected by access types allowed to a particular username.

However this connection method is telnet-like it is fully encrypted inside proprietary MINT protocol.
No plain-text credentials are used.
 
Additional notes
This is not relevant to Access Control / method. When general access for Telnet is disabled WiNG just closes port TCP/23

Connection over MINT will still work if access type is allowed
