Thanks for this.

It really should give some sort of warning,

Enable WPS with script

Hi,

I've been trying to get WPS enabled via a script pushed to the router with CWMP.

Is this too "interactive" to allow?

Hoping not as the devices we are using do not have WPS buttons and customer service really shouldn't be opening a shell to customer devices.
