Thank you solutionz for your very helpful post, especially the config decrypting part at the end. It allowed me to quickly move the stupid wifi guest to a different subnet just by editing the xml file!

Otherwise if you want to give it a crack yourself:

 

 

 

 

Anyone tried this with a recent Vodafone firmware?

 

 

 

@solutionz tried your guide but once I'd enable Telnet I could no longer SSH in, plus port 23 didn't open on the modem for remote access.

 


Any other pointers / tips or should I try a Spark or BigPipe firmware?

Cheers. Got telnet via that firmware. Interesting that it doesn't appear to have dropbear/ssh access

Thanks heaps for this. 

 

I've just used the v20 firmware from Vodafone for a HG659 (not B) and then the python script to edit the config. 

 

Then can ssh (with appropriate cipher/key settings) and run xdslcmd.

In case anyone's still wondering about this:

 

HG659 supports 'xdslcmd':

 

 

biggal:

 

I would like to know too

 

 

 

i can log in with the Admin password with ssh 

 

but all commands fail

 

 

 

login as: Admin
Admin@192.168.1.1's password:

-------------------------------
-----Welcome to ATP Cli------
-------------------------------
ATP>sh
sh
Command failed.
ATP>

 

 

 

 

This is because your settings file has TelnetEnable="1" however ConsoleEnable="0".

 

I've built a config file to BigPipe V100R001C297B011 which enables Telnet and Console here: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=158&topicid=201985

 

I've built another one for Spark which *should* work too: http://filebin.ca/2uyUZGXdCUd6/SPARK_HG659_enable_telnet.conf

 

(WEB: admin / admin, CLI: !!Huawei / @HuaweiHgw)

 

If you want me to build one for VF firmware you'll need to send me a settings backup file from your router:

 

  • Backup your current settings: Maintain > Device Management > Backup or Restore Settings > Backup
  • Reset to default: Maintain > Device Management > Factory Restore > Reset
  • Backup your default settings: Maintain > Device Management > Backup or Restore Settings > Backup (Send me this file)
  • Restore your settings: Maintain > Device Management > Backup or Restore Settings > Restore Settings

 

 

 

 

Otherwise if you want to give it a crack yourself:

 

  • Install Python (x64): https://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.6.6/python-2.6.6.amd64.msi
  • Install Pycrypto (x64): http://www.voidspace.org.uk/downloads/pycrypto26/pycrypto-2.6.win-amd64-py2.6.exe
  • Download "hg635_configtool.py": http://pastebin.com/JbZjygY3
  • Backup your current HG659 settings as: 192.168.1.1 > Maintain > Device Management > Backup or Restore Settings > Backup > downloadconfigfile.conf
  • Locate hg635_configtool.py and downloadconfigfile.conf in the same directory.
  • CMD> hg635_configtool.py decrypt downloadconfigfile.conf output.xml
  • Open output.xml and set; WanManagementEnable="0", TelnetEnable="1"; ConsoleEnable="1"; Userlevel="2"
  • CMD> hg635_configtool.py encrypt output.xml output.conf
  • Restore your settings: 192.168.1.1 > Maintain > Device Management > Backup or Restore Settings > Restore Settings > output.conf

 

 

 

Doesn't seem to be working for me. Modem complains about an incorrect confirmation being uploaded and doesn't want to restore. Link to conf: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bx0zYcIcA_19blRwNjYzRklOU3c

What are the changes you've made to your conf and what firmware you running?

With the Vodafone V20 firmware which username/password were you able to SSH in with?

 

 

 

I've been trying and I can't login as the Admin user over SSH.

So I'm trying a freshly installed vodafone firmware.

 

 

 

<X_ServiceManage TelnetEnable="1" TelnetPort="23" KeyEquipMode="0" ConsoleEnable="1" CircleTestDevice="" CircleTestResult=""/>

 

<X_Cli>
<UserInfo NumberOfInstances="1">
<UserInfoInstance InstanceID="1" Username="Admin" Userpassword="Lp0xkiAANwcYpVPbI3D/Mn==" Userlevel="2"/>
</UserInfo>
</X_Cli>

 

 

 

Anyone got an X_Cli Username example with a working password. I can't currently login to the router over Telnet.

For what it's worth. I changed the admin password in the regular http interface and then I could still ssh into it after doing the python script -> edit ... etc. 

 

Default ssh in Debian won't connect to router because the router uses old connection parameters. eg: 

 

ssh 192.168.1.254
Unable to negotiate with 192.168.1.254 port 22: no matching key exchange method found. Their offer: diffie-hellman-group1-sha1

 

So I did this command to connect:

 

ssh -oKexAlgorithms=+diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 -c 3des-cbc Admin@192.168.1.254
The authenticity of host '192.168.1.254 (192.168.1.254)' can't be established...
etc.

Interesting. Thanks for that.

 

The password doesn't appear to work on my unit though. Hmm
