Restricting Remote Access to Management Functions
You can restrict access to management functions from remote sources, including Telnet, the Web management
interface, and SNMP. The following methods for restricting remote access are supported:
Using ACLs to restrict Telnet, Web management interface, or SNMP access
Allowing remote access only from specific IP addresses
Allowing remote access only to clients connected to a specific VLAN
Specifically disabling Telnet, Web management interface, or SNMP access to the device
The following sections describe how to restrict remote access to an HP device using these methods.
Using ACLs to Restrict Remote Access
You can use standard ACLs to control the following access methods to management functions on an HP device:
Telnet access
Web management access
SNMP access
To configure access control for these management access methods:
Configure an ACL with the IP addresses you want to allow to access the device
Configure a Telnet access group, web access group, and SNMP community strings. Each of these
configuration items accepts an ACL as a parameter. The ACL contains entries that identify the IP addresses
that can use the access method.
The following sections present examples of how to secure management access using ACLs. See the "Using
Access Control Lists (ACLs)" chapter in the Advanced Configuration and Management Guide for more information
on configuring ACLs.
