Huawei AR-28-11 Router

with 11 comments

This by far the coolest device I’ve found since I started this blog. The one I found was from a hotel at China. The first thing that got my attention was its awesome (default?) banner:

And I was lucky since it was still having its default username/password (admin/admin) set on it. My first thought was to just grab the image and start reverse engineering it (you know.. because of the banner), but then I saw the numerous options:

ar2811-2And there are a few more…

Unfortunately, the only files inside this box where these:

But since my initial goal to just grab this nice .bin image I did this first:

This device has anything you might want including remote connection such as telnet, rlogin, ssh, ftp, tfp, rsh etc. protocol implementations for IPSec, TACACS, BGP, RIP, OSPF etc. and the best part is that all of them can be easily configured to fit your ‘needs’. Anyway, the application version was:

If you want that main.bin just drop me an email and I’ll send it to you :-) If you are curious about what this configuration file had… well, it was nothing… just admin’s encrypted password and a couple of ACLs for its local network. Well, I just wanted that image so I don’t really care about the rest of the network :-P
Have fun!

  9. Good afternoon.
    Friend main.bin file you sent me is damaged.
    By the time the router starts to unzip it gives an error, this is the error.

    ” An error was encountered during image decompression.
    Start to launch backup application file—flash:/main.bin!

    The backup application file is self-decompressing”

    If you can help me or send me another that has no flaws I would greatly appreciate it.
    Sorry for so much trouble but this router has me tired.
