I have a new Catalyst poe switch, and I used the express setup feature.

However, I noticed it didn't give me an option to enter a telnet user name.

Is there a way I can setup a user name?

If you are talking about a Catalyst Express 500, there is no telnet access to those devices. GUI is the only option.

Q. Are there plans to add a CLI or Telnet to Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches?

A. No, there are no plans to add a CLI or Telnet to these switches.

It's for the 3560G.

Should I be able to specific a login and a password through telnet.

Replace yourpassword with the password you want to use
