Command Line Interface
Connecting to Command Line Interface
For On-Premise Policy Servers Only:
Genian NAC allows you to connect to the CLI for an appliance directly from the Web Console. To connect, navigate to the System tab, and select the Terminal Icon in the IP column of the appliance you want to access. Authenticate with your administrator username and password. If your appliance is using a different admininstrator credential set than your Web Console, you must authenticate in the terminal using the appliance admininstrator credentials.
External SSH access only allowed from Approved IP. See: Initializing the System to add approved remote access sources.
You can connect to the Genians policy server or network sensor from a dedicated SSH client or any command line with SSH support. Any other inbound connection attempts will be denied.
- Use standard procedure for your chosen utility to select SSH connection to your Genian policy server or network sensor IP Address.
- Log in with Genian NAC Username and password.
The first connection of the equipment is divided into console mode and shell mode. In console mode, you can check basic system status and support configuration. This document identifies and describes how to use commands in console mode.
