Using the Web Interface

To access the switch by using a web browser, the browser must meet the following software requirements:

  • HTML version 4.0, or later
  • HTTP version 1.1, or later
  • JavaScript version 1.5, or later

Use the following procedures to log on to the web Interface:

  1. Open a web browser and enter the IP address of the switch in the web browser address field.
  2. Type the user name and password into the fields on the login screen, and then click Login.

    The user name and password are the same as those you use to log on to the command-line interface. By default, the user name is admin, and there is no password. Passwords are case sensitive.

  3. After the system authenticates you, the System Description window opens.
