    HP Procurve 4108GL

    I have just started to really play with this thing and although I've setup most of it I would like to Create a Username and Password combo so I can use the web interface but I can't see how I do that?

    Anyone else using a Procurve that could help?

    Thanks

    Wes

    If you plug it in, it should get an address via dhcp, it will show up in windows dhcp server without a host name. Then you can either telnet into that IP or
    Code:
    http://address
    instead and configure its security settings from the web page. If you don't have it plugged in where it can get dhcp then you will need to connect via the console cable with something like hyperterminal.

    When using the telnet interface, try 'menu' from the command line for a nice little config menu.

    Ok telnet to it's ip addres that you've set via a terminal on the console port.
    When logged into the 4108GL# prompt type menu

    Goto to option 3 or press 3.
    Pick the user you want to set the password for operator or manager.

    Once one of these is set you can then access the web gui.

    There isn't one, it takes you through a new user setup iirc.

    The HP switches do NOT automagically get an IP by DHCP unless you to them to using the serial interface. Once you have done this, away you go... although I would recommend a static IP for switches.

    Re: HP Procurve 4108GL

    I suppose it depends on the default factory settings whether or not they get their IP from BOOTP or DHCP or STATIC.

    Thanks for that though managed to get the usernames and passwords sorted. My main concern now though is after a short period of time a second login box appears (Java Based) asks for my user and pass then it crashes the browser and the switch for 5 - 10 minutes this affects connection to the switch via TELNET, WEB or Procurve Manager but the switch is still working properly for every other function, any ideas?

    Firmware update if it's not on current firmware as a start.

    Re: HP Procurve 4108GL

    @DMcCoy & Norphy: I think it is a (relatively) recent change to some of the firmwares. I know the last 2 switches I bought definately didn't have DHCP set as the default.
