Configuring the Login Page

You can fully customize the HTML login page and also add custom embedded graphical images to it. This page and the associated graphics must be uploaded to the switch so that they can be served up as the initial login page at the base URL. Both HTTP and HTTPS are supported as a means of authenticating the user via the custom page.

In general, the steps for setting up a custom login page and graphical images (if any) are as follows:

  1. Write the custom webpage.
  2. TFTP the page and any embedded JPEG or GIF graphical images that it references onto the switch.
  3. Enable and configure web-based Network Login on the switch. When the custom page is present on the switch, it will override the configured banner.
