It’s been quiet for a while and many things have changed these few months. I have been involved and experiencing new flavor of networking, which is Huawei platform. Normally, no matter what vendors you are using, below basic setting are always required…like hostname, enable remote access with some restriction, new username for management and date/time. So let start from very basic of configuring those setting.Configure hostname
sysname iNET9-S6320-30C-SW1Enable SSH

[Router-1] clock timezone Asia/Phnom_Penh add 07:00:00 Or you can configure router to sync time with NTP server by using below sample command. ntp-service unicast-server 10.10.0.1 source-interface MEth0/0/1That’s it for some basic configuration on Huawei switch or router.
