How do I configure my Cat4948 switch to allow access to an FTP server from the console?
I have set up a Cat4948 to have 2 VLANs: VLAN 2 is the "Server" VLAN and VLAN 3 is the "Management" VLAN. On the management VLAN I have several devices that are manageable via HTTP, and I can access them from the PC within the VLAN designated for that purpose. I also have an FTP server on VLAN 3 whose purpose is to allow updating of the switch.
When I access the console and try to copy from (or to) the FTP server, it fails. I do not want to allow access to the FTP server from any devices on VLAN 2, just from the switch itself.
Any help would be appreciated.
You should be able to create a layer 3 SVI on the 4948 in vlan 3.
So on the 4948 you can do
switch(config)# interface vlan 3
switch(config-if)# ip address "vlan 3 ip" "vlan 3 subnet mask"
This should then allow the switch to talk to the FTP server.
