The Users window is used to add new user accounts that can access the device with different user credentials than the default ones. The newly added users can be assigned to one of two groups, either of which can be modified to limit WebUI read/write access rights for users belonging to each specific group.
This page is unrelated to SSH users. By default, there is one SSH user named “root” and it shares the same password as the default WebUI user named “admin”.
This manual page provides an overview of the Users page in RUTX11 devices.
If you’re having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device’s WebUI, you should turn on “Advanced WebUI” mode. You can do that by clicking the “Basic” button under “Mode”, which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.
The Groups section lists available user groups of which there are three:
Additional note: you can view and/or edit settings for each group by clicking the ‘Edit’ button next to them. More on information on how to edit group access settings is located in the following section of this manual page.
A group’s parameters can be set in its Group Settings page. To access the Groups Settings page, click the ‘Edit’ button next to the group’s name. Below is an example of the Group Settings section:
The easiest way to master the syntax is to navigate to page that you want to generate a path for and the copy the path from the URL of that page.
For example, to specify the path to the Services → VPN page, navigate to the page, copy the page’s URL address starting from the word “admin” and paste it into one of the access fields:
However, the VPN window contains links to many different types of VPN pages. If you want to specify only one of them, you can do it as well. For example, to to specify the path to the IPsec page, add “/ipsec” to the path string:
An asterisk (*) in the path string means that the every page from that point on is included in that path. For example, to generate a path that includes pages in the Services menu tab:
Or to simply include everything in the entire WebUI (if this path is combined with Read action: Deny, users from that group will not be able to login to the WebUI):
The Users section lists all created users and provides the possibility to change their passwords and the group they belong to (with the exception of the default user “admin” which always belongs to the root group).
By default, there is only one user called “admin”:
Each user’s password and group parameters can be set in their User Settings pages. To access the User Settings page, click the ‘Edit’ button next to the user’s name.
However, you may want to add a new user at first. This can be done from the Add New User section below:
Below is an example of a newly added user’s settings page:
The Add New User section is used to create additional users that can access the WebUI. After a new user is added, it will appear in the Users section.
