Enable telnet – DAHUA

Q: How can I enable telnet access?
A: On some devices you can use this URL: http://DEVICE IP:HTTP port/cgi-bin/configManager.cgi?action=setConfig&Telnet.Enable=true . You will need a valid username and password for this operation to succeed.



If you have forgotten your password, you can use our DVR / NVR password recovery service.

We do not recommend to keep your telnet service enabled, as your device and your private video surveillance system will become a target for hackers.

There are two reasons that will make gDMSS (DMSS Android version) show you this error message:
-you have entered a bad password: please check it / retype it
-someone has tried to access your account and it got locked

In both cases after you check that the username and the password are the right ones you should reboot your device!
