Hi,

You need to change the following configuration in the GUI:

System ›› Users:User List -> Click in the admin username link

Then change the configuration in Terminal Access to Advanced Shell.

You always can restore a locked account using the Unlock button.

Hi,

The default configuration deny admin access to console and ssh!

The admin user is only allowed to access webui.
