5.4 Command-line

The command-line interface (CLI) means interacting with the router system where the user issues command to the router system in the form of command lines.

Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol to access the router’s command-line interface. The EZR33 router offers various ways to access the command-line interface.

5.4.1 - Web Terminal

After accessing the router, go to System > Terminal. Input the default username root and the router password. You will then receive the welcome message on the web terminal interface.

* The web terminal is unavailable under the Traversal Cloud mode. You can refer to Remote SSH to configure a remote SSH tunnel on the traversal cloud.
