I can't set an IP address on a Huawei AR207V router because it rejects the "ip address" command.
It's a used but factory reset unit, I'm currently connected on the serial port no other connections.

I can't update to latest firmware because it needs an IP first.
This is what happens when I try to set an IP on an interface -
Please configure the login password (<6-128>) Enter password: Confirm password: <Huawei>system-view Enter system view, return user view with Ctrl+Z. [Huawei]interface Ethernet 0/0/0 [Huawei-Ethernet0/0/0]ip address 192.168.2.1 24 ^ Error: Unrecognized command found at '^' position.
There are plenty of instructions* which show setting an IP as above but this unit rejects the crucial command
What's going wrong here?
