well i'd want to know your entire config... assuming this is IOS, which we've still not worked out... do a "show run" and paste it *ALL* in here.

i would assume you know how to enter commands like this in the switch? i connect via hyperterminal and the only way around is hitting i for ip m for monitor in one window they differ as you go window to window so i wouldnt know how to type show run with out it thinking im hiiting s [S] h [H] O [O] w [W] e.t.c. assuming the s stands for something as well as h, o, w

come on mate, please try to help us help you... can we just start with copying the contents of the screen as you see it... maybe that'll at least tell us what you're looking at... from what you're saying this is catos not ios, which i don't know, but the standard docs for catos will still help you if you read them.

ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have read that so many people refer me to that. I should state on my re: that i already read that. Almost the whole thing. And what this paper says is netscape 4.6.1 an old versions of IE are required to view the 1900 catalyst web page, so i tried that and still nothing. Thats why i come to this forum and post a question. Now this site that you are refering me too says there is a web interface, it dont tell you step by step how to get to it, it just says you can get to it by its ip and old versions of browsers are required. none of these seem to work.

clearly it tells you *EXACTLY* how to enable it... you just go into the right submenu and choose enable.

Multiple Issues

You need to understand that you have two operations that you have to perform.

1. You have to assign an IP address to the switch.
2. You have to make sure that the switch is configured for you to access the web interface.

You will do all of this though your console connection in Hyperterminal.

Go back to that Cisco article and look for Figure 4-1. It has a map of the configuration menus.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/swit...tb.html#wp5090

Through the network management menu you can reach both the HTTP Server config and the IP config menus.

BTW: The machine you try to long on to the web interface from must be in the same subnet as the IP on the switch.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok thank you for the post and the info. I hate http://www.cisco.com

I have read this a went to network management on the switch and i get nothing to help with web interface. The site says make sure your on the same subnet, how can i not be im plugged into a port on this switch. its like this Router ip= 192.168.1.1 subnet 255.255.255.0
Switch= ip=192.168.1.109 subnet 255.255.255.0 gateway= 192.168.1.1


then i goto Http://192.168.1.1 and i can get to the router interface
Http://192.168.1.109 And nothing Https the name of the switch.com nothing i tried it all. The documentation at cisco.com nothing
Someone has to know.


Ps.I tried to update the firmware hahaha that was disaster. I thought it would be like the router where you pick the file you download to update with hahaha they want tftp site of some site to get from. Thats a whole other post

This is an image of the switch setup via hyperterminal:

Actually, cisco documentation is quite good. You just need to get past your first configuration of a cisco device to appreciate it.

That said, you are configuring a switch that is quite old and has a menu structure that is no longer used on newer cisco switches.

You say that you are plugged into one of the switch ports.

1) Does that mean that your PC's ethernet NIC is plugged into a switch port or are you simply using the serial cable that is plugged into the console port? The serial cable does not support TCP/IP.

2) Is there a cable that connects between the cisco switch and a switch port on your router/firewall? If so, does it have a link (a green light on the switch port)?

3) From your PC, are you able to ping the 192.168.1.109 address?

If you are able to ping this IP address from your PC, then enabling http access is the only step remaining. Try navigating through the menu structures until you find the sub-menu that allows you to enable the http feature. If you are not able to ping the switch, then I would focus my efforts on properly connecting this switch into your current network, then deal with the http issues.

BTW: Its been years since I have used one of these switches, so I could be mistaken, but I seem to remember having to set a password before some of the sub-menu's were enabled. Might be worth a try.

Good luck!

Answer) No i am connected via serial cable and on one computer just a lan port off switch


Is there a cable that connects between the cisco switch and a switch port on your router/firewall? If so, does it have a link (a green light on the switch port)?


Answer) Yes i can get internet off the switch just cant access the web interface. Yes there is a green light.

From your PC, are you able to ping the 192.168.1.109 address?

Answer) Yes i did attempt to ping 192.168.1.109 and it did work although my router dont say the DHCP is leasing out that address

BTW: Its been years since I have used one of these switches, so I could be mistaken, but I seem to remember having to set a password before some of the sub-menu's were enabled. Might be worth a try.

Answer) i thought enabling a password was going to be it but no.lol i have enabled a password so when you first connect via hyper terminal it ask for a password. I enter the password and then it just lets me in
