I have heard that this is possible to do...maybe through SNMP put commands, but I have no idea how to do it and I would like to know if it is possible. Lets suppose you have a remote location with 1 router and 1 switch. The switch dies and you have a maintenance worker install a new one and hook it to the router with a cable. You need to configure the switch but do not have an ip address since there is no config on the switch. How can you configure that switch remotely?
Here is the real problem, the scenario is the same as above, except the switch is configured but is not configured for telnet or ssh. Any suggestions here?
