Disabling console port access

If your FortiAP is located in an easily accessible location, you can disable serial console port access to prevent intruders from physically accessing the FortiAP. By default, console login is enabled in WTP profiles.

To disable console login

config wireless-controller wtp-profile

edit <profile>

set console-login disable

next

end

Tooltip

When the console access is changed, all managed FortiAPs using the profile are rebooted.

You can confirm console login is disabled by logging into the FortiAP with the SSH connection.

FortiAP-433F # wcfg | grep console-login

console-login : disabled
