Access Policy

A default access-policy ID 1 exists for services such as FTP, HTTP, TFTP, Telnet and SSH (optional SNMPv3 and rlogin). Access-policy is globally disabled by default. If enabled the policy will be enabled with mode allow.

VSP-8284XSQ:1(config)#show access-policy

AccessPolicyEnable: on

Id: 1
Name: default
PolicyEnable: true
Mode: allow
Service: ftp|http|tftp|telnet|ssh

NetAddrType: any
NetAddr: N/A
NetMask: N/A

This can cause a log message like below if a third party application uses SNMPv2 to communicate with the switch.
