I have an ACTIONTEC C1900A ADSL/VDSL modem (CenturyLink branding).
The device has the most recent firmware installed (CAB005-31.30L.96).
When I telnet to the device and run the sh command to get to the shell, here's what the session looks like:
PS C:\> telnet 192.168.0.1 ===Actiontec xDSL Router=== Login: admin Password: <entered my telnet password> > sh Please input shell credential to login Login:
I tried a username of admin and my telnet password, but all I get is:
Please input shell credential to login Login:admin Password: <entered my telnet password again> Password Incorrect! Try again.
I also tried a username of admin and the default password of the device (on the device's sticker), but that password doesn't work either.
In other words: There are ADDITIONAL credentials to access the sh prompt on the C1900A. I don't see these additional credentials anywhere in the C1000A configuration GUI.
I have performed a reset of the C1900A device but the additional sh password is still there.
Does anyone know what credentials to use for sh console access on the CenturyLink C1900A device?
