I wanted to make it clear that I am a newbie with Cisco. I am currently working with my first piece of equipment that is Cisco named....And for some reason, I think picked a hard one!!!
I have a CSS 11501 Software version 8.10. Is the CiscoView Device Manager the web interface application?? If so does this come installed? If its not installed, can I install it?? I guess I should have started by asking...Does this switch have a GUI interface? I also tried downloading some software on the cisco site and cant seem to do it. it has a picture what looks to be a lock next to it? If anyone has the patience to help me I would be very thankful.
thanks in advance.
Yes CVDM is the GUI for CSS software 8.10 and 8.20.
